It's no secret that many manufacturers are cutting corners and creating French-style easels that make a mockery of the original Jullian French easel. Don't let the bad drive out the good! Dick Blick asked Jullian, the designer of the original, to make us a French style easel with all the original workmanship and details, plus a few modern innovations that just make sense, like a nylon carrying strap.
This classically designed easel combines a sketchbox, easel, and canvas carrier in one for the on location, plein air painter. Blick's French Easel, designed by Jullian, is adjustable to whatever height and angle suits your painting style. It is beautifully handcrafted in naturally dried, oiled, and polished elmwood.
The easel includes a weather-resistant metal-lined box that holds a wood palette (included). It's also ideal for storing and transporting paints, brushes, and other accessories (not included). Use it as a canvas carrier too. Finished paintings can be placed on the outside of the folded easel and carried. Pre-assembled.
Carrying Bag — The easel now includes a FREE red canvas carrying bag with a nylon handle and shoulder strap for easy portability.
