Yellow ochre was one of the first colors used in art. The yellow used to produce Vermeer’s little patch of yellow wall is more or less identical to the pigment in a 17,000-year-old painting of a yellow horse at Lascaux. Yellow has a habit of getting into things. A yolk breaking in scrambled eggs. Yellow journalism was named after a particular newspaper comic character’s 19th century yellow nightshirt. In Italian, the yellow of crime novel covers in the 1930s now refers to any real or imagined crime story. In China today, “yellow movie” refers to pornography. Yellow is a complex color. In the West, surveys note people’s association of yellow with humor and spontaneity, but also duplicity. In China a hundred years ago and more, it was also the color most closely associated with the emperor. Yellow dazzles, flatters, fascinates. No coincidence that Narcissus lives on as a yellow daffodil. Yellow pages are an index, a directory of possible responses. Like Vermeer’s little yellow wall, they are surfaces that scatter sunlight, precious in themselves. -Kristen Dodge
