Prussian Blue Round Pastel Shades

Art Spectrum® Prussian Blue Round Pastel Shades

An intense deep blue with a powerful presence. It was one of the first synthetic pigments created by the paintmaker Diesbach in Berlin around 1706. It was also
commonly known as Berliner blau. It was also referred to as Parisian blue. The Japanese artist, Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), made extensive use of Prussian Blue in his famous print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

Prussian blue also features on one of the earliest, rarest and most valuable stamps, the 1847 two pence stamp from Mauritius of which only twelve exist. Odds are, if you own one of these it’s worth millions.
