Winsor & Newton

Founded in 1832 the company was started by William Winsor & Henry Newton who built their business on the marriage of art and science, determined to respond to the needs of artists and offer them the widest choice of colours with the greatest permanence. From the very beginning, Winsor & Newton brought scientific rigour and a new spirit of enquiry to the craft of the artists’ colourman. Within a few short years, they set new standards for colour permanence and clarity. They introduced new colours and new opportunities for artists, establishing a proud tradition marked by constant improvement and continuous response to ever-changing needs. Today, the tradition of quality and innovation continues as Winsor & Newton actively embrace new ideas, materials and technologies. Above all, they work with and respond to the needs of artists, providing them with new opportunities to explore their creativity.
