W&N ARTISTS' OIL COL - 708 WINSOR EMERALD (S2)

RM 50.40


Winsor Emerald is a bright clean opaque emerald colour. First documented in 1822, it was originally a deadly colour containing arsenic. It is said to have killed Napoleon as his wallpaper in St Helens was emerald green. Winsor & Newton have since created a non-toxic version closely matching the original colour.
