Welcome to dickblick
Roger Jullian first designed the Jullian easel in 1945. These new easel boxes deliver all the beauty and practicality of the original Jullian easel at an affordable price.
Crafted in naturally dried, oiled, and polished elmwood, they have brass-plated fittings with locking parts and adjust easily for height. Each includes a canvas holder and an 11" × 18" mahogany finish plywood palette.The pullout drawers are metal lined with movable partitions. Each easel also offers a leather handle and leather tagholder.
Use these easels sitting or standing. Each will hold up to a 34½" high canvas. Both sizes offer the same features, but in the half box easel the palette folds.
The Full Box Jullian Easel comes with a Free Carry Bag.

Jullian Half Box Plein Air Easel is great!
By Jesse James
from Rio Verde, AZ
Comments about Jullian Paris Plein Air Easels by Jullian:
This carries folding palette (I use a small bungee cord to secure it to it's pull out drawer), tubes of paint, brushes, knives and brass holder for solvent can (fashioned from a flat piece of brass bent to go over pull-out drawer). I use a separate carry-all for paper towels, panels, solvent, sealed solvent can, medium, tube wringer, pliers, latex gloves and small plastic garbage bags (another small bungee cord is used through handles of plastic bag to secure to screws on sides). This easel is easy to set up and take down. Fully loaded, it is fairly light and easy to carry and is balanced by the other carry-all you provide with afore mentioned supplies/equipment; easy to set down when needed during hiking. No backpack is necessary. I own two half-box easels and use them at home and in the field. Love them. Great value. They work for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Happy with purchase
from Cleveland, Ohio
It's light and easy to transport. Yet sturdy enough to do work on it.
Plein/ A way to work.
from Mingo, Iowa
This is just what I needed to do what I've always wanted to do. Paint outside/ on site/ away from my studio with world of different media.
Just the right size
from Joplin, MO
I used the half box easel to paint outdoors. It was great to carry, was sturdy, and very adjustable to the terrain I was on.

Beautiful Easel - above my skill level
By pseudo artist
from Los Angeles, CA
This Julian half-box easel is well built and a marvel of design. I can see why the plein air workshop teacher recommended it. She takes hers along on flights from one country to the next. Perfect for her. I however am a mechanical clutz. This easel reminds me of the projection screen at work that I could never remember how to disassemble, no matter how often I had to set it up or put it away. I needed help from my husband to set-up the easel as well as close and rebox it. Therefore I cannot foresee myself setting it up solo and taking it down out in the field. If you have the skills I'm lacking, it could work well for you. I am returning it for a simplistic substitute more in keeping with my abilities.

Everything I expected
from d'Iberville, MS
I will be taking my Jullian plein aire easel with me on trip to Spain. I have already used it once at school and it is everything I expected it would be. The half box is small enough to fit in my check bag and still roomy enough to hold everything I'm going to need. The only drawback is that the hardware that keeps it closed is a little on the frail side. Other than that it's a great product. I look forward to painting like the masters. Or at least look like I am!

It looks beautiful, exactly as I wanted -- natural wood, engraved logo, lether handle. It such a pleasure to just touch it, set it up, arrnage the paints around. The weight is perfect! I prefer walking to driving, and a typical french easel I could find in stores was too heavy and bulky. I had a hard time finding a lighter easel, and this half-box size is less than 4kg (8 lb), which is as much as I would like to carry around. A nice surprise: the half-box came with a free bag even though the website only mentioned the full-box getting one. Thanks!

Half French easel by Jullian.
By On the Road
from Boston, MA
The size of this French easel is perfect! I was, however, a bit disappointed in the finish and weight of it.I expected a Jullian to be made of smooth, furniture grade wood. It's a bit raw, with open grained ends and for a full week I left it on our porch to get rid of the heavy smell of whatever they used to seal the wood.That said, the hardware is of good quality. It comes with a carrying bag/backpack, and the price was unbeatable! I bought this to carry in the trunk of my car for those "I wish I had an easel with me" moments! For the price (used a coupon) it is a great deal.
I'm in Love
from San Diego, CA
I'm in love with my new plein air easel! I purchased the full box model and am very pleased that I did. I can put all my supplies in the easel's box, place the folded easel in the included carrying bag, and set out. I had a little trouble setting up the easel when it first arrived. The easel's moving parts are built so sturdily I was afraid to pull on them to put them in position! It seems wobbly when you first set up, but once you get the proper splay on the legs it is sufficiently sturdy. This easel is going to get years and years of use!

I had an old full size Jullian easel that I used for 25 years or more. Treating myself to a new one, I bought this one. After two years it is falling apart; all the hardware is not secure in the wood and it doesn't seem fixable. It must be a cheaper wood than the old one and that is why the rice was good. Bummer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
