Richard and Thomas Rowney established the Rowney Company in 1783 and initially sold perfumes and wig powders. Wigs fell out of fashion when George IV discarded his own wig and so the Rowney brothers began to produce artists’ colours. They went on to supply Constable and Turner together with many other celebrated British artists.
In 1963 Rowney was the first company in Europe to produce acrylic colours and both Peter Blake and Bridget Riley, prominent exponents of Pop Art, used their paints. In 1969 the company relocated to Bracknell but remained a family-run business. Tom Rowney had been Managing Director for 30 years but had no family to succeed him and so sold the business to Morgan Crucible.
Meanwhile, the Daler Board Company had been established for more than 20 years and had created a substitute for canvas when canvas was in short supply during the post-war years. Following the success of Daler Board the company developed a variety of artists’ materials including the first synthetic watercolour brush.
In 1983 the Daler Board Company purchased the George Rowney Company and became Daler-Rowney. Producing paper, brushes and colours, Daler-Rowney is unique amongst the leading brands in the fine art market. The company caters to the needs of professional artists, accomplished students and amateurs including emerging talents and beginners. The key products are diverse in nature but include oil paints, notably Georgian Oils and Graduate Oils, acrylic colours including System 3, watercolour surfaces, watercolour papers and brushes.
