Iodine Yellow

Or iodide of lead, is one of those compounds whose presence on the
palette should never have been allowed. Exceedingly brilliant, it is
also utterly fugitive, destroyed by exposure or foul gas, and useless in
admixture. We may state here that, whatever its colour, no pigment
containing iodine can in the slightest degree be relied upon. One of the
most unstable of substances, being slowly volatile even at common
temperatures, iodine is or ought to be quite inadmissible as a
constituent. Combined with lead, which is in itself objectionable, it
forms a yellow possessing every bad quality.
