During the Renaissance, pink was mainly used for the flesh color of faces and hands. The pigment commonly used for this was called light cinabrese; it was a mixture of the red earth pigment called sinopia , or Venetian red , and a white pigment called Bianco San Genovese , or lime white.
And when these two pigments have been thoroughly mulled together that is, two parts cinabrese and the third white , make little loaves of them like half walnuts and leave them to dry. When you need some, take however much of it seems appropriate.

The zenith of the color pink was the 18th century, when pastel colors became very fashionable in all the courts of Europe. Pink was particularly championed by Madame de Pompadour — , the mistress of King Louis XV of France , who wore combinations of pale blue and pink, and had a particular tint of pink made for her by the Sevres porcelain factory, created by adding nuances of blue, black and yellow.
While pink was quite evidently the color of seduction in the portraits made by George Romney of Emma, Lady Hamilton , the future mistress of Admiral Horatio Nelson , in the late 18th century, it had the completely opposite meaning in the portrait of Sarah Barrett Moulton painted by Thomas Lawrence in In this painting, it symbolized childhood, innocence and tenderness.
Sarah Moulton was just eleven years old when the picture was painted, and died the following year. She had a special pink tint created for her by the Sevres porcelain factory. This portrait by Maurice Quentin de La Tour was painted between and Pink had become a popular color throughout Europe by the late 18th century.
It was associated with both romanticism and seduction. This fashion plate is from — Here pink represented youth, innocence and tenderness. Pink was worn by both sexes. In 19th century England, pink ribbons or decorations were often worn by young boys; boys were simply considered small men, and while men in England wore red uniforms, boys wore pink.

The US presidential inauguration of Dwight D.
Eisenhower in when Eisenhower's wife Mamie Eisenhower wore a pink dress as her inaugural gown is thought to have been a key turning point to the association of pink as a color associated with girls. Mamie's strong liking of pink led to the public association with pink being a color that "ladylike women wear. In the 20th century, pinks became bolder, brighter, and more assertive, in part because of the invention of chemical dyes which did not fade.
The pioneer in the creation of the new wave of pinks was the Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli , who was aligned with the artists of the surrealist movement, including Jean Cocteau. In she created a new variety of the color, called shocking pink , made by mixing magenta with a small amount of white. She launched a perfume called Shocking, sold in a bottle in the shape of a woman's torso, said to be modelled on that of Mae West.
Her fashions, co-designed with artists such as Cocteau, featured the new pinks. In Nazi Germany in the s and s, inmates of Nazi concentration camps who were accused of homosexuality were forced to wear a pink triangle. The transition to pink as a sexually differentiating color for girls occurred gradually, through the selective process of the marketplace, in the s and 40s. In the s, some groups had been describing pink as a masculine color, an equivalent of the red that was considered to be for men, but lighter for boys.
But stores nonetheless found that people were increasingly choosing to buy pink for girls, and blue for boys, until this became an accepted norm in the s. Red is the only color whose lighter shades have a different name, pink, than the color itself. In optics, the word "pink" can refer to any of the pale shades of colors between bluish red to red in hue, of medium to high lightness, and of low to moderate saturation.
A few variations of pink, such as salmon color, lean toward orange. As a ray of white sunlight travels through the atmosphere, some of the colors are scattered out of the beam by air molecules and airborne particles. This is called Rayleigh scattering.
Colors with a shorter wavelength, such as blue and green, scatter more strongly, and are removed from the light that finally reaches the eye. The remaining pinkish sunlight can also be scattered by cloud droplets and other relatively large particles, which give the sky above the horizon a pink or reddish glow.

Flamingoes in Laguna Colorada , Bolivia. The pink or reddish color of flamingos comes from carotenoid proteins in their diet of animal and plant plankton. A unhealthy or malnourished flamingo, or one kept in captivity and not fed sufficient carotene, is usually pale or white.
Its pink color, like that of the flamingo, comes from the carotenoid pigments in its diet. The Lophochroa leadbeateri , commonly known as Major Mitchell's Cockatoo or the pink cockatoo, is a native of the arid interior regions of Australia. Raw beef is red, because the muscles of vertebrate animals, such as cows and pigs, contain a protein called myoglobin , which binds oxygen and iron atoms.
When beef is cooked, the myoglobin proteins undergo oxidation, and gradually turn from red to pink to brown; that is, from rare to medium to well-done. Pork contains less myoglobin than beef and therefore is less red; when heated, it changes from pinkish-red to less pink to tan or white. Ham , though it contains myoglobins like beef, undergoes a different transformation.
Traditional hams, such as prosciutto , are made by taking the hind leg or thigh of a pig, covering it with sea salt, which removes the moisture content, and then letting it dry or cure for as long as two years. The salt sodium nitrate permits the ham to retain its original pink color, even when dried out. Supermarket hams are made by a different and faster process; they are brined, or infused with a salt-water solution, containing sodium nitrite , which transfers nitric oxide , which bonds with the myoglobin to form the traditional pink cured ham color.
The shells and flesh of crustaceans such as crabs , lobsters and shrimp contain a pink carotenoid pigment called astaxanthin.
