As children, we all learned 1492 was a special year as Columbus sailed the ocean blue. But for artists, 1492 has another special meaning…the founding of the ARCHES® paper mill in Arches, France. For more than 520 years, artists like Van Gogh, Matisse, Chagall, Picasso, Braque, Miro, Dali, Lichtenstein, Buffet, Warhol and Alechinsky have trusted ARCHES® as their paper of choice.
