A brief history of the colour:
Ultramarine Blue is the blue of infinity. This is not the cerulean-tinged blue of the sea or the sky, but an otherworldly blue. It recedes to unknown depths, and leaves a powerful effect. The artist Yves Klein built his life and work around this colour. Ancient battles were waged to protect and control the lapis lazuli mineral from which the natural ultramarine pigment was ground.
The chemistry of Ultramarine pigment leads to unique resilience in low light conditions, and small spaces can be optically widened using shades of ultramarine. Le Corbusier included this particular shade in his 1959 color keyboards for his Salubra wallpaper collection.
Please note: Carefully matched to historical colour cards and samples, these colours cannot be reproduced digitally, and variation in appearance on-screen is unavoidable. The paint surface itself is somewhat delicate; it is recommended that it be kept out of direct sunlight.
