Background is an option which specifies the background color to use.
Background is an option for graphics functions, Text, Cell and ButtonBox.
The setting for Background in graphics functions must be a CMYKColor, GrayLevel, Hue or RGBColor directive.
The default setting in graphics functions is Background->Automatic, which produces a white background on most output devices.
In Text, Background->None draws no background rectangle around the text and Background->Automatic draws a background rectangle in the same color as the background for the whole plot.
In a cell, the background is used only for the region inside any cell frame.
See Section 2.9.9, Section 2.9.11, Section 2.10.3 and Section 2.11.9.
