Fine Paints of Europe is an American company that evolved out of my search for high quality paint to use on our family's eighteenth-century home. Like many tourists traveling in Europe, I was struck by the depth of the colors and the beauty of the finishes seen on interior surfaces and painted facades throughout the Continent. When it came time to paint our home, I sought out finishes of European quality. My search led me to discover that such paints were not available from American suppliers.While researching the domestic market, I was disappointed to learn that performance standards no longer exist in today's U.S. paint industry.
