The Visible and the Invisible

Color Contrast Phenomena in Space

ISBN 9789197724784

The Visible and the Invisible: Color Contrast Phenomena in Space deals with the changes in color that arise in space, primarily simultaneous contrast in three dimensions. The typical account of simultaneous contrast is that the contrast phenomenon occurs between two or more areas of color seen together, which thus affect one another. The book broadens this view and traces the history and theory of contrast phenomena from antiquity to the present age.
