Rooted in 18th century London, the Rowney Company was established in 1783 when Richard and Thomas Rowney opened premises selling perfumes and wig powder, before focussing their business on the development of artists’ colours.

The company built its reputation by providing art materials of the finest quality, and is proud to continue to do so today across all channels and product categories pertaining to fine art, with offerings tailored to professional and amateur artists as well as students and beginners.
