In the fifteenth century the brothers Van Eych refined this technique providing a more fluid oils. Antonello da Messina learned the new technique of Jan Van Eych and moved to Venice. There Titian was involved in the evolution of perfecting painting. Subsequently Rubens to Velázquez and Rembrandt influence, each of which will bring new techniques that other painters collected.
Finally is Goya who prepares the way that will lead to the Impressionists which give rise to great pop of color.

Titan Industries began producing oil colors on 1950, first for the friends of their owners, the Folch family, then their products were distributed in the Art Gallery Art Gallery of Paseo de Gracia, and was Vicenç Piera Amat, founder of House Vicenç Piera, who through his nephew Miguel Piera, also manufacturer of industrial paints, a friend and classmate of Mr. Albert Folch, persuaded Messrs. Folch about artists' paints that could be profitable well distributed by specialized houses. So, Vicenç Piera was the first specialized in selling Titan oil colors for artists .
