The name Lascaux is well known for the caves in the Dordogne region of France, where the earliest artistic works of man are found, dating back to the Paleolithic era. It also stands for a range of high quality, Swiss made artists’ colors - the Lascaux Colors.
Lascaux concentrated on developing other products that would extend the possibilities for artists using acrylics. These additions, the mediums, gels and pastes, greatly expand the scope of new techniques while maintaining the durability and quality characteristics of Lascaux colors. When the special handling and mixing properties of Lascaux Colors are joined with the various painting aids, a unique, compatible, intermixable system is formed; one capable of unsurpassed diversity and creativity.
