The island of Cyprus is the source of the most precious umber pigments. This color is based on one of them. They are deeper and mellower than others, and artists began to use them to depict shadows in the Middle Ages. This color has an integrative effect on its surroundings, acting like a warm embrace that infuses everything nearby with more depth and color. This ability to enhance contrasts makes Cyprus umber 272 extraordinarily useful in many spatial contexts.
