A love of fine art is a lifelong passion. So is making unique, high-quality fine art materials.
Grumbacher has been serving the artists’ community for more than a century. The company’s products are trusted by students, professors, art conservationists, and professional artists.
In 1905, Max Grumbacher started making brushes by hand at his kitchen table in New York City. By the 1960s, Grumbacher had become an art materials empire.
Today, the Grumbacher brand remains committed to adhering to the impeccable standards set by Max Grumbacher. Whether it's Grumbacher oil paint, watercolor, acrylic paint, or gesso, the company sets strict measures of exemplary quality and consistent performance for its products, which have been developed by generations of artists and engineers. Grumbacher Pre-Tested Professional Oil Colors were one of the first oil paints made in the USA, and Grumbacher Max Oil Paints were the market's first water-mixable oils.
Grumbacher takes pride in being an American art materials manufacturer and a leader in the industry. The company is committed to growing and adapting to the ever-changing environment of the fine and graphic art industries.
