Theory of Colours by GOETHE, Johann Wolfgang von

Newton’s observations on the optical spectrum were widely accepted but Goethe noticed the difference between the scientific explanation and the phenomena as experienced by the human eye. He did not try to explain this, but rather collected and presented data, conducting experiments on the interplay of light and dark. His work was rejected as ‘unscientific’ by physicists but his color wheel is still used by artists today. – Summary by Lynne Thompson
