Art is an affirmation of serene perfection

The long Italian artistic tradition is combined with San Marco’s experience in the world of color.
Paeninsula pays homage to art and color through color selections inspired by four great masters of fine arts.
Artists belonging to very distant eras, from the fiftheenth to the twentieth century, yet each brought the highest expression of creativity and artistic genius of his period. Different eras, styles and tonalities that sum up the history, values and the uniqueness of Italy.
So breathe in Italy’s traditions and art history with the exclusive Paeninsula paints. More than a hundred shades to furnish according to the most modern styles and trends. Available in the Ultramatt and Eggshell effects, which are distinguished by the unique opacity that brings out the best of every home-setting.

Palette Botticelli

Botticelli is the Florentine artist who contributed the most to the Renaissance’s growth in the early decades of the fifteenth century. All his activity took place in Tuscany’s capital city, in the shadow of the Medici family, and in the neoplatonic climate that characterized the culture of Florence, a mature and rich city well aware of its superiority.

The choice of colors shows a preference for strong colors, such as Medici green, Porcelain yellow, Venus yellow or Renaissance blue.

Palette Canaletto

Canaletto adds a breadth of vision to his century’s painting, a totality of vision and absolute control of space. A great sensitivity for light and shadow that make the surfaces of Venice’s 18th-century buildings, bell-towers and churches vibrate.

Canaletto established the rules for the effects of chiaroscuro and for perspective set in such a way that the light falls on the cracked surfaces of the plaster or on the pink cracks of the bricks, creating a series of evocative and picturesque effects.

Palette Michelangelo

Michelangelo Buonarroti is one of the most important exponents of the Italian Renaissance. A multifaceted artist, he was mainly distinguished in sculptural art. In his works he uses the technique of unfinished, where the block of marble is still present in some parts of the finished work to highlight the beauty of the figures realized.

The characters represented in his works create a completely new concept of dynamism. The movement, the chromatic choice and the careful study of light-shadow, have made him one of the most renowned and appreciated artists of all times.

Palette Modigliani

Amedeo Modigliani is one of Italy’s most important artists of the twentieth century. A painter and sculptor, Modigliani is considered the icon of the romantic and cursed artist: handsome, brilliant, poor and passionate; big-hearted but with a fragile body.

Modigliani’s portraits are striking for their ability to capture the essence of his subjects with a few simple strokes, enriching them with timeless elegance. Its palette is composed of a few basic colors: Capri yellow, Jeanne red, Dark Provence purple, Elvira white, diluted with mastery with flax oil, in order to accelerate the drying time and expertly mixed with each other to obtain the characteristic traits and nuances of his style.

The exclusive Ultramatt effect finish gives a uniform and elegant finish that is extremely resistant and long-lasting.

Its high covering power and easy stain-removal properties make it easy to apply and keep clean.

With very short drying times, it is odourless, free of volatile organic compounds (VOC), plasticizers and formaldehyde.
