Zur Farbenlehre, (Tübingen, 1810)
Author: GOETHE, Johann Wolfgang (1749-1832) Artist: N/A

Goethe’s largest and in his own opinion best work. It is known as a fierce attack on Newton’s demonstration that white light is composite. In its physiological aspects Goethe’s colour theory remains an epoch-making work.
