SUPPLIERS OF THE FINEST ART MATERIALS

Canson

Established in 1557, Canson boasts an exceptional heritage. The papers have always been made in Annonay France and Canson continues to use 500 years of knowledge and experience to create impressive fine art papers.

About Canson

Interestingly, for much of its history, Canson was controlled by the Montgolfier family who also pioneered manned flight and produced the first hot air balloon. Quite a claim to fame! Across the generations Canson has nurtured the skills of exceptional craftsmen but has also valued innovation. The company developed tracing paper in 1807 and then created Mi-Teintes, the first dyed paper.

Many great artists have used Canson papers including Delacroix, Van Gogh, Degas, Matisse, Picasso, Dali, Warhol, Jean-Michel Alberola, Toguo, Philippe Starck and Yan Pei-Ming. Canson has created special relationships with many artists and has produced papers specifically for individual artists such as Ingres and Maillol. Today the collection features the perfect papers for leading artists, amateurs and children.

Canson Paper at Pegasus Art

We are thrilled to be able to bring you Canson’s revered Mi-Teinte pastel paper. The surface of this paper is textured to enable your pastels to adhere well and the paper is acid-free. It is suitable for pastels, pencils, conte carres crayons, gouache, watercolour & acrylic. It is coloured in the pulp and light resistant.

We also offer Canson Heritage watercolour paper and pads. This is a new hot pressed paper which has been developed to maximise creativity by providing the capability of lifting paint cleanly. The sizing delivers exceptional colour fidelity and vibrancy and you will appreciate the clarity that you can achieve with this paper.

We would also like to draw your attention to Canson The Wall Marker Paper Sketchpads and Canson XL sketchpads which complete the range.
