Marten Talens founded Royal Talens, the "Dutch Factory for Paints, Lacquers and Inks" in Apeldoorn in 1899. The Royal Talens company developed the Rembrandt line of products and colors, renowned for its superior and unrivaled quality and extensive range of color options.
Pure craftsmanship, the best raw materials, and artistic understanding combine to give Rembrandt products unique features such as the highest degree of fineness, lightfastness and durability, so that the original colors, expression and values are preserved for the future.
Rembrandt colors are still ground on the traditional triple-roller, as they have been for more than a century. Although it is not the fastest production method, it is certainly the best. And that is the heart of the Royal Talens philosophy and the Rembrandt reputation.
