Marten Talens founded Royal Talens, the "Dutch Factory for Paints, Lacquers and Inks" in Apeldoorn in 1899. The Royal Talens company developed the Rembrandt line of products and colors, renowned for its superior and unrivaled quality and extensive range of color options.
Pure craftsmanship, the best raw materials, and artistic understanding combine to give Rembrandt products unique features such as the highest degree of fineness, lightfastness and durability, so that the original colors, expression and values are preserved for the future.
Rembrandt colors are still ground on the traditional triple-roller, as they have been for more than a century. Although it is not the fastest production method, it is certainly the best. And that is the heart of the Royal Talens philosophy and the Rembrandt reputation.
Rembrandt pastels are made from the purest pigments and mixed with the finest quality kaolin clay binder. No pigments containing heavy metals, such as cadmium, lead, and cobalt, are used in production which ensures that the pastels have no hard bits or sharp edges.
Rembrandt Oils are produced with the highest color strength possible, using pure pigments. The pigments are ground to extreme fineness in a binder consisting of the purest linseed or safflower seed oil, resulting in an oil paint whose texture is exceptionally smooth, creamy, and even.
