Welcome to dickblick
Old Holland has been making artist colors since 1664, making it one of the oldest continuously operating companies in the art supplies industry. The company is known for uncompromising adherance to traditional techniques and standards.
All color making is done by hand, and all processes are controlled by artists. Pigments are ground in stone rather than metal rollers.
Old Holland Oils are produced according to traditional recipes, those used for paintings made in the 17th century. These paintings retain the clarity of their colors to this day. That's durability.
Like hundreds of years ago, only the best pigments and binders are used to produce very concentrated and light-fast paint, resulting in higher color strength, hiding power, and intensity. That goes for all 168 colors listed here.
Only cold-pressed linseed oil from the first pressing is used for the binder. This optimizes oxidation (drying) of the paint and also promotes permanence. The brush strokes flow out better too.
Hand-painted Color Chart
An essential tool for oil painters, this beautiful color chart displays every color in the Old Holland Classic Oil Color range on hand-painted chips that measure 1¾" × ½". The chart, which measures 27½" high × 12" wide, also includes comprehensive information about pigment composition, transparency, lightfastness, drying time, and oil content.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Can't believe how little it takes to get good coverage. This is my first time using Old Holland and I'm kicking myself for not using it sooner.

Great value for big tubes of excellent quality oil paint!
from Sacramento, CA
Purchased Old Holland oils - Burnt Sienna and Green umber which arrived timely and the quality of the oils does seem better than what I have been using --The green umber is for underpainting/portraits.
This is the first time for using holland brand oil paint and it's worth the price.
