The Tradition of Quality at Nevskaya Palitra Plant In 1900, a technologist from England Julius Freedlander was invited to Saint Petersburg by the Imperial Philanthropic Society to assist in establishing an oil paint factory. This is how the history of “Nevskaya Palitra” began. The enterprise had been functioning very successfully for several decades, and in 1934, it became Leningrad Artists’ Paints Plant on the initiative of the Tretyakov Gallery’s administration. The best specialists in the field of the painting techniques and production were involved in work to develop original compounds. Among them was Professor of Painting D. I. Kiplik, director of the All-Russian Academy of Arts U. Brodsky, as well as many organizations such as the Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture named after I. Repin and the Scientific Research Restoration Institute. As a result of many years spent on the plant development, a unique industrial complex was built. Now it is St.Petersburg Artists’ Paints Plant “Nevskaya Palitra.” The plant produces more than 600 items of painting materials: artists’ oil, watercolor, gouache, tempera and acrylic paints, dry pigments, as well as varnishes, oils, and paint thinners. The highest level of the production quality is supported by tight control of all production stages. The products of the enterprise have been used for the most delicate projects, including restoration of the precious pieces of art and architectural landmarks, such as St. Basil Cathedral, Grand Kremlin Palace, Cathedral of Christ the Savior, artwork from the collections of the State Hermitage, the State Tretyakov Gallery, and old Russian icons.
