Well, I guess they don't make it any more; at least I can't find it in
my sources. Rowney does have a quinacridone red (PR209) that's called
quinacridone red, but is said to very good and very similar to
M.Graham's quinacridone red (M. Graham's colors are well pigmented).
Rowney has a rose dore, that's a terrible (IMO, because of the
impermanence) mixture of PR83 and PR4, both fugitive. And it has a
permanent rose, that's quinacridone violet (PV19). So I don't know what
that "rose red" was, but I suspect it is no more.
