History
Customers were asking for more flexibility. They wanted to be able to paint on multiple sizes including squares and non-standard sizes. Carl wanted to try something new with his designs. He dreamed of combining the best features of a pochade box (built in storage and “all-in-one”, lightweight design with the flexibility of a French easel. He began working on prototypes in 2008 for this box , and after a lot of modifications and do-overs the French Resistance™ came to be. It was introduced to the public in early 2010. The Large French Resistance was also being developed at the same time and was introduced in early 2011.

Carl says: “The name ‘French Resistance’ is a double play on words. First of all, the WWII French Resistance was a guerrilla movement; secondly, this box is designed to improve on and replace the traditional French easel as the plein air painter’s workhorse.”
