Re: Which brand of oil painting brush is best?

Stefi: Had to go grab a brush to take a look-see, and this is printed on one side of the brushes : 'Manet-Soies Pures - France'. My knowledge of the French language stinks (it's been many a moon since Grade 8 French Class), so perhaps a more enlightened soul could tell you what this pertains to.

Asked my hubby what Manet-Soies Pures-France means:
Manet (brand?) Soies (is) Pures (Pure) France (France or French)

"Manet is pure French"

Manet might be spelled MONET?

Been a long time since he has spoken french also, but looked up some of the words in french dictionary. Everything in it, except MANET.
