What is Pink, in the Art by Various Artists

Various shades of pink.

What is pink? a rose is pink
By a fountain’s brink.
What is red? a poppy’s red
In its barley bed …

Colors, Christina Rossetti.

Pink was not a common color in the fashion of the Middle Ages. Nobles usually preferred brighter reds, such as crimson. But, it did appear in women’s fashion and religious art.
