When Dr. Georg Kremer was a student in Germany studying chemistry, a painter friend of his could not find a particular historical pigment and approached Kremer about it. Digging through archives, Kremer found the recipe to make it (this was well before the advent of the internet), and brought this extinct pigment back to life. Realizing a void in the art world, Dr. Kremer began to recreate other old pigments. ...

Coveted Color: Kremer Historical Pigments

Posted on September 14, 2010 – Extracts:

“What paint would you use if you were to restore the Sistine Chapel? This is a trick question. You can’t simply buy paint from the store. You have to make your own. And you will probably make it with pigments from Kremer.”

As the world’s only manufacturer of smalt pigment, he alone is responsible for the brilliant blue of the cross…”
