1862 Dr. Franz Schoenfeld founded the „Künstlerfarben- und Maltuchfabrik Dr. Fr. Schoenfeld“ in Düsseldorf, today known as Lukas-Nerchau GmbH, producing artist colours.
Around 1900 an important brand decision has been made which defines the company image since today: The patron saint of the artists “Saint Lukas” became the name giver for all products of the Lukas-Nerchau GmbH. Since then the colours are known as LUKAS Artists’ colours. The symbol of St. Lukas is still the logo of LUKAS’.
The constant aspiration for superior product quality resulted in confidence in the LUKAS colours of various well known artists. Also Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother he had ordered colours from Schoenfeld from Düsseldorf.
2013 Daler-Rowney takes over the Lukas-Nerchau GmbH. Since 2016 Daler-Rowney and Lukas-Nerchau belong to the F.I.L.A. group.
Started with the production of watercolours, Dr. Schoenfeld successfully transferred the advantages of the moist-pasty watercolour in tubes – the quick ink absorption with the brush - to a recipe for watercolours in pans. This event was the birth of LUKAS moist watercolour and the history of the company Dr. Fr. Schoenfeld. The company has relied on the quality from the outset. Using only highest quality artists’ pigments and particular bindings. The guarantee for pronounced colour intensity and light fastness and therefore the best conditions for the durability of artworks over many generations is formed in combination with consistent, highest processing quality.
Today LUKAS offers among the watercolours, also oil and acrylic colours, as well as a variety of mediums for all techniques.
