“Swirl – Manganese Blue Hue 2” Original Oil Painting by Victoria Klotz



Victoria’s comments: This was created using 1 color: Manganese blue and that was the intention of the painting. The color is very transparent and you can see that the color is entrancing. This beautiful blue is a pigment legendary in art history as a clear blue. It was a staple blue, pigment blue 33 to be exact, used by oil painters and watercolorists. The pigment was invented in 1907 by a chemist mixing sodium sulfate, potassium permanganate, and barium nitrate to then create barium manganate. The pigment itself was discontinued in the 1980s due to low demand for its use in specific top market industries. Visual artists were seen as low-market consumers for the demand, so the manufacturers didn’t continue making it. Germany was the last to manufacture the product until the 1990s. There are still tubes of Manganese pigment that can be bought but are low in supply. To create this painting I used “Gamblin Manganese Blue Hue” paint, which was found to depict an almost-exact likeness to “real” manganese blue. One day I will get my hands on a tube, but in the meantime take in this transparent blue with inquisitive eyes. Know its deep history and muze in its richness.
