Product description


Rublev Colours Flemish White is an opaque white pigment mixture based primarily on lead sulfate ground in linseed oil. This warm white is opaque, but not to the same degree as titanium white, so it won't kill colors in mixtures with it. It has a creamy, long consistency that makes it excellent in pure highlights.

George Field in his Chromatography of 1841 identified Flemish white as lead sulfate. In Field's Practical Treatise of 1795, "white precipitate of lead," which was sulfate of lead, was sold under the name "Flemish white." Prior to the nineteenth century, Flemish white was lead white made in Flanders. After that time it was a precipitated lead sulfate, which derives from basic lead sulfate. We recreated Flemish White of the nineteenth century, which was actually a mixture of pigments consisting of lead sulfate, barite (barium sulfate) and magnesia (magnesium carbonate).

Note: The color swatch shows the color applied thinly diluted with oil (left), a heavy application from the tube (middle), and mixed with an equal amount of white (right) on acrylic-primed cotton canvas (7 oz). All images of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you see on your monitor may vary.
