Canson® Drawing and Sketch ranges

Canson® 1557®

This bright white paper was designed to accentuate contrast and allows colours ta "POP". The 1557® name pays homage to the year that the Montgolfier family founded Canson®. This great classic is favoured among both professional and amateur artist who appreciate its light grain. Under this paper's rather simplicity is a rather sophisticated and technical paper. The paper's grain is neither too smooth nor too prominent. which gives il a neutral and subtle surface which is ideal for sketching and drawing with dry media.

Canson® 1557® paper is ideal for use with all kinds of graphite for it retains pigments well and allows for unlimited shading and gradation. Canson® 1557® is made with mass and surface sizing giving il a remarkably resistant quality that is resistant to repeated erasing.

The Canson® 1557® range is sold in sheets or in rolls, under the name of Dessin JA.
