The Dutch Boy Group is a paint manufacturing company. Founded in 1907 by the National Lead Company, Dutch Boy is currently a subsidiary of, and is owned and operated by the Diversified Brands Division of the Sherwin-Williams Company, who acquired it in 1980, three years after the CPSC's directive banning the manufacture of lead housepaint went into effect. It is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio.

Dutch Boy offers paints and paint products for both interior and exterior surfaces, including walls, ceilings, floors, porches, siding, and trim.


Dutch Boy uses a little Dutch Boy as its logo and trademark. The boy was painted by Lawrence Carmichael Earle and modeled after an Irish-American boy who lived near the artist.
