English Yellow




This clean yellow was particularly popular in English 18th Century decoration inspired by hand-painted Chinese wallpaper and the development of the Chrome Yellow pigment in the 1700s.

It was the first non-earthy yellow and a first would be very expensive. In the 1950s this yellow became popular as a strong primrose. It can be mixed with Antibes Green to make lime-green.

English Yellow giving this little French rococo style side table a contemporary look.
