A traditional round shape for accuracy and fine detail.

For many years, natural mongoose was considered a stiffer alternative to sable, with the advantage that it had more spring and so was better for moving heavy body colour. However, the mongose is now classed as an endangered species. Winsor & Newton have therefore developed Monarch - our sythetic alternative that mimics the characteristics of the natural hair.

Monarch is made with the highest quality blend of polyester filaments to provide the ideal flexibility needed when working with heavy body colour. Hog can sometimes be too stiff to blend colour on the canvas, whilst sable may not be stiff enough to add texture, precision and detail - The flexibility of Monarch is in between hog and sable and so gives you the total control you need.

Monarch Brushes have seamless, corrosion resistant ferrules with long, rich brown stained handles.

Suitable for use with all Oil, Acrylic or Griffin Alkyd Fast Drying Oil Colours.
  1. Versatile Review by Richard Crabtree

    The Winsor and Newton Monarch range of brushes are of excellent quality and very versatile in their capabilities. I was looking for a brush which would allow me to control my application of oil onto canvas and make a range of marks using both impasto and glazing techniques, these brushes work very well. They can achieve finishes from fine, smooth glazes to thicker impressionist marks.Great brushes! (Posted on 15/10/2012)
