The European Renaissance was a period of artistic and scientific exploration and invention. It is no wonder that the world's favorite art medium - oil paint - was introduced to a vast population of artists during this time in history. The combination of refined oils, such as linseed oil, was added to the finely ground pigments traditionally used in European paints. The oil trapped and suspended the pigments and resulted in a highly brilliant, translucent paint that has set the standard in art media for centuries.
