Alizarin crimson is a red color that is biased slightly more towards purple than towards orange on the color wheel. It is named after the organic dye alizarin, found in the madder plant, and the related synthetic lake pigment alizarin crimson (PR83 in the Color Index). Alizarin crimson paint was frequently used on Bob Ross' TV show, The Joy of Painting. William Henry Perkin had co-discovered a way to synthesize the pigment alizarin, which became known as the color alizarin crimson.
