Why would you think this?

No, the catalog doesn't name the pigment. It names the name Daniel Smith
gives the paint, just like any other catalog does. True, Daniel Smith is
better about calling a paint by the actual name of its pigment than a
lot of manufacturers, but people should not be misled to think that the
names of watercolors listed in Daniel Smith catalog are the names of
the pigments that the paints contain. For example, their "quinacridone
red" is actually quinacridone violet, PV19, and so forth.

What colors I can't get in M.Graham I get from Daniel Smith. They are
very good paints, and I doubt very much their employees are held in
caves and fed bread and water; I don't think they would be so cheerful
and helpful if that were the case.
