Indian yellow is a complex pigment that has a deep-mustard hue and a luminous quality.

This pigment was widely used in Indian art, especially in Rajput-Mughal miniature paintings, and was imported into Europe in the 19th century.

However, its origin and manufacture were long disputed and controversial, as some sources claimed that it was obtained from the urine of cows fed on mango leaves, while others suggested that it was of mineral or plant origin.

The pigment was eventually banned or discontinued in the early 20th century, and replaced by synthetic alternatives.

Indian yellow is composed of euxanthic acid salts, euxanthone and sulphonated euxanthone.

This color has a HEX triplet of #E3A857, which means it has RGB values of 227, 168, 87 and CMYK values of 0, 26, 62, 11.

It has a hue angle of 34.7 degrees, a saturation of 71.4% and a lightness of 61.6%.

In a color wheel, it is located between yellow and orange, and is considered a warm color.

Indian yellow can be mixed with other colors to create different shades and tints.
