2014, I may have the last tube of New York Bocour Cobalt Violet. I don't think it has been made for 50+ years, the tube is made of lead and New York City is pressed on the top flange of the tube. This magenta made the first RCW when gamboge was the only translucent/transparent yellow and Thalo blue was new.
PR122 quinacridone magenta is a perfect triadic pigment, also the new Opera pigment (2005) which looks like a tint of magenta in it's mass-tone. Opera has no dark color side like Quinacridone Magenta has.
To make all colors you see on location, you need three primary colors. Transparent Indian Yellow, PY:150 Brown/s, PY:153 Org/s or PY:100 Tartrazine, water based plus, transparent Magenta PR:122 and PB:15 Cyan.
This RCW should be taught in schools rather than the red-yellow-blue model that each State's School Standards demands.
Cobalt Violet Phosphate, Transparent duel-toned is the coolest magenta but not available anymore.
You can make a dark-neutral with Cobalt Violet Phosphate transparent, a duel-toned pigment, or 36RCW#13, PR122 quinacradone magenta transparent, a non-dual-toned pigment mixed with 36RCW#31 PG36 Phthalo Green Yellow/side (the original green) transparent.
