This time-honored color has its origin on a color chart distributed by French paint manufacturer Plastor around 1930. The sampler shows 24 delightfully matt glue paints. They represent the muted “natural/neutral” palette that “attained its contemporary form in the 1920s […] If architecture is not to resemble billboards, color should be both technically and psychologically permanent.” One of the Plastor samples features this lightened burnt umber. White elements emerge beautifully against a background painted in this color.
