Daler-Rowney is the sum of two long-standing English companies, dating back to the late seventeen hundreds, one of which specialized in painting surfaces and the other, color. They combined forces in 1983 to form what is known today as Daler-Rowney. Given the rich history of this UK Company it is safe to say that they are one of the world's most established and respected art supply manufacturers.
