We’re craftsmen of excellence
Specialized in the manufacture of dry pastel.
Founded in 1780, Pastels Girault® is the oldest brand of dry pastel still in activity today. Born in the golden age of pastel, Pastels Girault® quickly made a name for themselves with outstanding qualities rarely found in a single product.
Renowned artists such as QUENTIN DE LA TOUR have contributed significantly to the reputation of this prestigious brand. Pastels Girault® quickly gained worldwide recognition, winning several medals at the Paris World Exhibitions.
On our website, you’ll naturally find all of our pastel products on sale.
All our sticks are available individually or arranged in compositions by theme, such as landscape or portrait, by color case or arranged by today’s great artists. Sold in cardboard cases or adapted wooden boxes.
Discover our virtual gallery with a large number of artworks in dry pastel and access to various artists, including master pastelists.
