Black was one of the first colors used by artists in neolithic cave paintings. In the 14th century,
it began to be worn by royalty, the clergy, judges and government officials in much of Europe.
It became the color worn by English romantic poets, businessmen and statesmen
in the 19th century, and a high fashion color in the 20th century.
