History of the Color Wheel

Colourlovers.com (an great collaboration website all about color and color schemes) recently published a post on the history of the color wheel and color theory. Check the full article out here.

Little tidbits like these are found throughout the article:

"The first color wheel has been attributed to Sir Isaac Newton, who in 1706 arranged red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet into a natural progression on a rotating disk. As the disk spins, the colors blur together so rapidly that the human eye sees white. From there the organization of color has taken many forms, from tables and charts, to triangles and and wheels the history."
