Naples yellow is a warm yellow pigment that has been used in painting and other art forms for centuries.

It is made from a mixture of lead and antimony, and it has a bright, opaque color that is well-suited for both painting and drawing.

Naples yellow is one of the oldest known pigments, dating back to ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.

It was originally produced by heating lead oxide and antimony oxide together, creating a compound called lead antimonate.

This pigment was widely used in pottery, glass, enamel, and brick, as well as in paintings.

Naples yellow was popular among the Old Masters, such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Renoir, who valued its opacity and permanence.

It was often mixed with other colors to create warm tones and flesh tints.

However, Naples yellow also had some drawbacks.

It was toxic, due to its lead content, and it could react with other pigments, causing discoloration or fading.

By the nineteenth century, Naples yellow was replaced by safer and more stable synthetic yellows, such as chrome yellow and cadmium yellow.

Today, Naples yellow is still available as a modern pigment, but it is no longer made from lead antimonate.

Instead, it is composed of chromium titanate, synthetic iron, or titanium white, which mimic the original hue and properties of Naples yellow.

Naples yellow is a versatile and historical pigment that has a rich and varied history.

It is a color that can evoke warmth, light, and beauty, as well as danger, mystery, and decay.
