About Winsor & Newton
In 1832, chemist William Winsor and artist Henry Newton brought together the knowledge of the scientist and the creativity of the artist to offer an unprecedented choice of color, clarity, and permanence to fine artists.
Winsor & Newton pinpointed what was really needed — a regular source of reliable colors and brushes. First they developed vastly improved watercolors, followed by a number of other innovations including Chinese White — the first durable opaque white watercolor — and collapsible tin tubes for both oils and watercolors.
New era, new approach
A series of royal appointments and awards in the late 1800s paved the way for Winsor & Newton to introduce its colors around the world. And in the early 20th century the company expanded its range to offer key value ranges, and expanded its factories to ensure that paint and brush production continued during both World Wars. Throughout, William and Henry’s original ethos remained at the heart of the business — whenever there was a new, exciting, or better pigment or binder available, Winsor & Newton incorporated it, introducing Designers Gouache, Griffin Alkyd fast-drying oils, Artisan water-mixable oils, and the revolutionary Professional Acrylic with a translucent binderWinsor Newton continues to be innovative to this day, most recently introducing watercolor markers, watercolor sticks, and pigment markers.
Winsor & Newton was granted its first Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria in 1841, and has received the endorsement ever since. Today Winsor & Newton remains by Appointment to HRH the Prince of Wales, and may display his coat of arms. Known for his commitment to ecological issues, the Prince of Wales has additional criteria, asking that companies meet a code of good environmental practice if they are to supply his household. Winsor & Newton is dedicated to making sure that its materials, its manufacturing processes, and its communication with artists minimizes the company's ecological impact. A few examples of this include:
