Part 1: A history of color theory

In this episode we will cover the development of color theory.

The fathers of color theory:

Isaac Newton (1642 – 1727)

Thomas Young (1773-1829), Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894)

Developed a new theory of colors based on the thesis that there are three „sense organs“ in the eye. One sense organ for red-orange (Scale 1 in the image), green (Scale 2 in the image) and blue-violet (Scale 3 in the image).

Ewald Hering (1834-1918)

After his thesis there are two opposing pairs of colors: blue-yellow and red-green. Thus he defined correctly those four colors as basic colors.
