Gamboge is a deep yellow pigment derived from a species of tree that primarily grows in Cambodia.

It is a partially transparent color that ranges from saffron to mustard yellow.

This color has been used as a dye for Buddhist monks' robes, as well as a watercolor paint and a printing ink.

Gamboge is also known as "pipe Gamboge" because it is collected in bamboo canes.

It has a hexadecimal code of #E49B0F, which means it is composed of 89.41% red, 60.78% green and 5.88% blue.

In a CMYK color space, it is composed of 0% cyan, 32% magenta, 93% yellow and 11% black.

It has a hue angle of 39.4 degrees, a saturation of 87.7% and a lightness of 47.6%.

Gamboge is a vivid orange color that can create contrast and warmth in a design.

It was first recorded in Japanese art in the 8th century, and became more accessible in Europe in the 17th century due to increased trade.

However, gamboge has not been extensively identified in works of art from any time period, as it is often mixed with other pigments or faded over time.

Gamboge is a color with a long history and a versatile use.

It can evoke a sense of energy, warmth, and exoticism.

This color can be found in nature, art, and culture.
