An introduction from Robert Gamblin:

Since our founding, I have wanted artists to be able to paint freely. To use color and texture without hesitation or reservation.

To do this, painters need colors that are true. True to the pigment. True to historic working properties. True to the emotion of each color. Colors that feel right, that respond under the brush and that age right on the canvas.

As a young painter, I remember standing in an art supply store with a basket full of paints wondering what I would have to forgo, and what I would have to create, in order to keep painting.

When I founded Gamblin in my garage in 1980, I had just enough money for a small mill and some white pigments. For over a year, I made only white. During this time, I resolved to build a colorhouse completely dedicated to oil painters.

We would make materials not just as they had been, but as they ought to be. We would help painters to find their flow in painting and to paint freely.

Our Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors are handcrafted with our beginnings and that same dedication in mind.

Paint freely.
