Prussian Blue is one of the most loved colors of all time, if only for its importance in the history of art. Loved and used by many artists, including Antoine Watteau and Canaletto and many other artists in the 18th century, by impressionists, expressionists and avant-garde artists such as Monet, Cézanne, Picasso, Gauguin and many others. This blue has given us memorable and very popular works of art, such as Van Gogh’s Starry Night and the works of Picasso’s Blue period, up to oriental prints that everyone knows and loves, such as the work of the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai, The Great Wave. This is just a short list, not exhaustive, as there would be many works and artists to mention

This dark and intense blue contrasts with warm and bright colors such as yellow, orange and red, but is capable of establishing good dynamics with cold colors such as green and other shades of blue and light blue, and with neutrals such as gray , black and white. Like many colors obtained with pigments, it is not possible to reproduce it exactly on a monitor, nor with four-color printing. However, tri- and process-color of this color for digital reproduction (RGB, HEX or CMYK) is a good compromise for using this color on and with digital media and process-color printing.

Other names that you may encounter for Prussian Blue include Berlin blue, Brandenburg blue, Parisian Blue, Paris Blue

Hints of history

Prussian Blue was accidentally synthesized by the pigment manufacturer Johann Jacob Diesbach in the early 18th century. He was actually mixing the ingredients, which must have been potash, ferric sulfate, and dried cochineal, to obtain a red. Once discovered, it was then marketed with the help of Johann Konrad Dippel, an alchemist whose life intersects with Castle Frankenstein, who was Johann Jacob Diesbach’s supplier. Prussian Blue spread throughout Europe and over time throughout the world.
Prussian blue is often referred to as the first of the modern atificial pigments.


One of the reasons why Prussian Blue became very widespread is that it came to replace, as an intense blue, the very ancient Ultramarine Blue, which was very expensive as a precious and rare stone, lapislazuli, was used to produce it.
In addition to the chromatic qualities of this pigment, the stability to light was appreciated by painters. In fact, as we know, many pigments are sensitive to light, and many art works come to us with colors altered over time due to exposure to light.
In addition to the pigment for art and painting, Prussian blue has many technical and scientific applications, for example it is used to cure some serious radiation poisoning, the presence of Prussian blue can help to date and attribute a work of art, Prussian white, a close relative of Prussian blue, is being studied by some start-ups to create electric batteries that are less expensive than lithium batteries.
