In 1832 chemist William Winsor and artist Henry Newton brought together the knowledge of the scientist and the creativity of the artist to offer an unprecedented choice of colour, clarity and permanence to fine artists. Winsor & Newton pinpointed what was really needed – a regular source of reliable colours and brushes. Winsor & Newton first developed vastly-improved watercolours, followed by a number of other innovations including Chinese white, the first durable opaque white watercolour, and collapsible tin tubes for both oils and watercolours. A series of royal appointments and awards in the late 1800s paved the way for Winsor & Newton to take its colours around the world.
