Make like Monet and get out your canvas and brushes to capture some of Paris’ charm. Don’t worry if you’ve left them at home – at Sennelier, you can stock up on brushes, oil paints and watercolours to your artistic heart’s content.

Gustave Sennelier, who opened the shop in 1887, was fascinated by the chemistry of colours. In collaboration with painters – including Cezanne – Sennelier developed 100 shades of colour, ground by hand in an intensive process. In 1949 the shop even designed a product just for Picasso: an oil pastel that wouldn’t smudge. Today, the shop is still run by the Sennelier family and although the production of paints has been modernised, the history of its famous past customers still lingers in the air.
