The fundamentals of colour are based on Albert H. Munsell’s theory of colour:
The way you visually match colour today is the result of Albert H. Munsell’s work nearly a century ago. In fact, modern day colour theory and the mathematical colour system are based on Munsell’s theory of colour. For years, scientists had studied the mechanics of color going as far back as Newton’s early color wheel. But not until A.H. Munsell had anyone combined the art and science of color into a single color theory. His groundbreaking work laid the foundation for today’s computerized color matching systems and enabled a greater understanding of color principles for generations to come. An artist and an educator, Munsell developed his color theory to bring clarity to color communication by establishing an orderly system for accurately identifying every color that exists. Munsell based his system on what he defined as “perceived equidistance” — the human visual system’s perception of color.
