“If one day I become president of the United States,
I’ll paint the White House pink first. ”
The other day, revisiting “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, these familiar lens languages suddenly evoked my infinite reverie about games, fairy tales and art, and its unique aesthetic style fascinated me.
Especially in the movie’s kaleidoscopic and colorful world of yesterday, the sweet macaron sets and vintage tones stimulate the eyes, and the American milkshake is as delicious as an American milkshake, and the fluffy pie is covered with a layer of flowing fresh raspberries.
It is this sweet and undisciplined film that decodes my pink imagination space, like a delicate postcard sent to seventeenth-century Europe, containing a strong emotional accusation, ambiguous and direct. In my mind, there has never been a color comparable to the unique temperament of pink that is both strong and gentle, it is a multidimensional color in flux, not only a girly stereotype, it is varied, rebellious and complex, smart and stupid.
Pink is not only the artistic soil of imagination, but also a natural tranquilizer for people, which can stimulate people’s estrogen secretion and help women delay aging, so it is also a wonderful symbol of love.
Where are you from?
Ancient China used “crimson” to make “pink”, “Yangfei color” and “Xiangfei color” all take their meanings, Tang You Cui Hu: “Last year today in this gate, people’s faces and peach blossoms reflect red” golden sentence, Southern Dynasty Liang Fangji “Jinshi Le” poem: “Jade face light pink, Luo sleeves flick flowers.” Since ancient times, “crimson” has been a typical representation of female images and has been given many beautiful symbolic meanings

In Europe, the earliest trace can be traced back to the description in Homer’s epic poem “Odyssey”: “On a childlike morning, the morning twilight of the color of roses falls”, and the Latin Roseus also represents a girly color similar to rose pink.
It was not until the Renaissance that pink appeared in the works of artists, became a creative element of typical paintings, and attracted people’s attention.
Rococo powder の Memories of the times
The most powerful era of pink in Europe was the Rococo period of the eighteenth century, all thanks to Louis XV’s lover Madame de Pompadour, who skillfully combined pink and light blue in the field of fashion, court decoration and architectural style, making the eighteenth century a truly pink era.

She participated in the preparation of the palace of Fontainebleau, Place de la Concorde and Elysee in France, and designed iconic court costumes and decorative pieces for the French court, making these pink elements the most noble fashion in France, and her “rococo powder” influenced generations to come.

At that time, men and women, young and old, all dressed in pink and tender, rococo powder not only represented the gentleness of women, but also represented the “strength and tragedy” of men (European pink at this time was not fully feminized until the First World War), and the women’s clothing of this period inherited the Baroque period clothing pattern, adding a bit of pink playfulness to the elegant and dignified.
Can you imagine? Rule a dynasty with one color!
During the Louis XVI period after Madame de Pompadour, the French royal family’s enthusiasm for rococoa powder remained undiminished, and at this time a fashionable icon who loved fans appeared very much, she was the famous queen, Marie Antoinette.
Because of a political marriage, the gifted and lively Princess Marie married France from Austria at the age of nineteen, she participated in and witnessed the luxurious and confusing life of the French aristocracy on the eve of the French Revolution, and weaved the last dream world for the French dynasty in Rococo pink, and the beauty and bleakness of Versailles were all related to her.
