History of Blue

Dress: Madeleine Simon

The color blue has a long history, dating back to ancient times. The ancient Egyptians used a blue pigment called "Egyptian blue" in their art and architecture. The ancient Romans also used a blue pigment called "smalt" in their mosaics. In the Middle Ages, the color blue was associated with the Virgin Mary and was often used in religious artwork. During the Renaissance, the color blue became more prominent in art as artists such as Titian and Vermeer began to use it more frequently in their paintings. In the 19th century, new blue pigments were discovered, such as ultramarine and cobalt blue, which allowed for a greater range of blues to be used in art. Today, the color blue is used in a variety of ways.
