Utrecht has been carefully handcrafting Utrecht Artists' Oil Colors in its Brooklyn, New York, mill for more than 50 years. These fine oil colors are prized by professional artists around the world for their brilliant color, buttery texture, outstanding lightfastness, and excellent long-term performance.
High pigment concentrations guarantee superior tinting strength and remarkable vibrancy straight from the tube. A wide range of single pigment colors produces excellent mixing results.
Don't be misled by the affordability of Utrecht Artists' Oils — they are comparable in quality to leading professional brands costing significantly more.

Comments about Utrecht Artists' Oil Colors:
Ive been painting for over 20 years. Im retired now and dont have the income I once had. Looking for ways to reduce expenses I decided to try the Utretch oils. I was suprised and delighted at how well they perform. They are every bit as good as the more expensive brands ( I cannot comment on Old Holland as I have never tried those). And theyre made right here in the states. Sorry I didnt try them out years ago. Louis
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I don't think I would order this PORTRAIT paints again.
from Holly Springs NC
Most portrait paints are professional mixes such as the PRO MIX that we bought from Blick the last timeEX: Pro Mix Color System's Neutral 5. This set of paints I will have to add some other paints to obtain the proper shades for my portraits. I can do that with the paints I had in house and saved . I'll keep the paints, but not for my portraits necessarily. In other words, I'm not pleased with what I paid for.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great value for quality of pigments!
from South Carolina
Utrecht artist oils are extremely dependable paints, and for the money you won't be disappointed!
Consistant quality, excellent value
from Hamilton, VA
I am very pleased with Utrecht oils. They are a nice consistency to work with. Some colors I have purchased in other brands are noticeably thicker and difficult to work with than other colors. Utrecht colors I have used have a more consistent texture, which very pleasant to paint with.

creamy and smooth to work with
from Aztec, nm
Blick was given me very good service
Love this Color
from Green Bay WI
First off this is a great color! Beyond that the cover stays on, and it is very easy to squeeze the paint out. I have had other brands that the metal is so think you can't get the paint out. The paint itself is quality.

Great titanium white for an affordable price
As a plein air painter, I go through a lot of white. I like the consistency of this titanium white and that I don't have to worry about affording it.
Yes, I have been buying Utrecht supplies since 1968,48 years
from Kentville, Nova Scotia
A professionals paint. Shipping is not the best deal.When I first bought Utrecht it was from the ware house in Brooklyn. I met Harold and Norman Gulamerian,Who gave me a complete tour of their operation. It was wonderfully informative and very interesting. More than just a tour they showed me their love and sincerity in the process of making Professional Fine Art Paint.Nothing compares to Utrecht and I hope this continues.Francis C.A. Moyerbfa.
