Canson® Watercolour ranges

Canson® Montval®

Canson® Montval® paper was designed by the painter Gaspard Maillol, a nephew of the sculptor Aristide Maillol, and manufactured by Canson® at his request at the beginning of the 20th century.

Since then the paper has gained new qualities. Acid-free, with excellent longevity, treated against mildew and untainted by any optical brightening additives, this is the top quality watercolour study paper.

It is very easy to use and effect corrections (the paper can be washed with a brush).
