Color Theory

While learning the various names of colors in kindergarten, who would have thought that there would ever be such a complex theory on the various aspects of mixing specific colors and therefore having an impact on our cognitive process. The color theory was originally found by Leone Battista Alberti in 1435, as he was the first ever recorded individual to discuss the concept of this theory, however, the theory initially began getting much more recognition during the 18th century where it was coined the theory of color and furthermore referenced as colorimetry and vision science. Originally during the 18th century, the color theory had three primary colors, red, yellow, and blue as these colors were thought by painters and other artistic professionals to have the capability of creating any color possible. The theory of color was first published in 1810, by German poet Johann Wolfgang vone Goethe, who believed thoroughly about the idea, and furthermore tied the theory to having certain psychological and effects. However, towards the late 19th century, many scientists actually found that instead of red, yellow, and blue being the primary colors, it should be red, green and blue; therefore, the yellow was substituted for green. The theory of color entails many individuals, scientists, and artists attempt to figure out how mixing each of these three colors in a certain way can yield every color possible.

Some of the most famous theories regarding color comes from some very prestigious geniuses of history. For example, Isaac Newton was attracted and intrigued by the concept of color theory, and furthermore decided to dedicate some time into the study. Newton was practically interested in the idea of canceling colors. In which he would decide how to make white, gray, or the color black by using certain colors to dilute others to create these three difficult colors to appear. Another individual that was deeply interested within the concept of color was a man known as Michel Eugene Chevreul, who was a French chemist that worked with fatty acids in the form of art and science. However, Chevyreul also had a passion for understanding color and art. Chevyreul was substantial in the development in this theory, as he created a Chevyreul's classification of colors and chromatic diagram, which is also known as Chevyreul illusion. His famous theory and law of color contrast stated that colors that appear together can be changed if mixed with the complementary color of the other color.
