Jacques Maroger

Jacques Maroger

Jacques Maroger (1884–1962) was a painter and the technical director of the Louvre Museum's laboratory in Paris. He devoted his life to understanding the oil-based media of the Old Masters. Maroger published The Secret Formulas and Techniques of the Old Masters in 1948. Maroger's formula and techniques have been studied by many modern painters (like us!) who wish to obtain the paint quality of the Old Masters.

Maroger introduced to the modern day artist what the masters achieved centuries before in their paintings, a way to ensure permanence and color quality in oils without sacrificing fluid and subtle paint handling. Equipped with these formulas, the artist could once again blend his paint easily without losing control of his brush. The paint stays where it is applied and does not run off the panel. It dries very fast so that he can paint on the same areas the very next day, which speeds up painting.
