Naples Yellow Paris (Lead Antimonate Yellow) is an opaque ocherous yellow, fine-grained with medium tinting strength. This is genuine lead antimonate yellow made according to historical recipes. This is the historical pigment (not a mixture of pigments to make Naples yellow hue) ground in linseed oil without any additives (e.g., stearates, waxes, etc.) or fillers typical of modern colors. It is ground on stone mills repeatedly to a smooth paste.

Hold the paint tube in your hands, and you will feel the difference from convenience hue paints made by other manufacturers—the genuine color is so much heavier. Load your brush with it and see the difference. Lead antimonate yellow was made at Thebes from the sixteenth to fourteenth century B.C.E. It reached its highest popularity in European art between 1750 and 1850. It was gradually replaced by chrome yellow (lead chromate) and, later, cadmium yellow (cadmium sulfide). Lead antimonate yellow has not been rated for lightfastness by ASTM International. Still, independent studies have shown that it is permanent in most vehicles and, according to Doerner, can be used with all other pigments without alteration.

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.

All images of color swatches on this website are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have carefully matched the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, your results may vary because of the wide variance in color monitors.

Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.

Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mils (0.006 inches) thickness applied to a standard test card to examine color consistency, opacity, and other qualities. The drawdowns show the full-color strength (mass tone) on the left and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns is scraped to show undertones.
