The Kitzinger paint factory, purveyor to the royal Bavarian court before World War I, produced a series of paints based on natural earth pigments. It included the classic light ochres, but also two darker ones with a tinge of green, made with a pigment similar to raw Sienna called Sahara. The deposits from which the pigment can be extracted are located in France. The unusually dark ochre is a finely crystalline earth pigment, which in this pure form is indeed reminiscent of the color and dry quality of the sand in the Sahara.
