  1. said it involved violet
  2. was expecting purplish-red, vegetation-green, and an ultramarine-blue
  3. famously got it right.

But what?

    Primary colours to explain the colour sensation in the eyes.


  4. Girish

    Theory of primary colors

    Thomas Young originally proposed red, green, and violet, Helmholtz proposed “a slightly purplish red, a vegetation-green, slightly yellowish, and Maxwell changed young’s violet to blue;

    Three ppl who proposed and refined Trichromatic colours.

    this is the thing about the trichromatic colur vision theory, and the colour triangle – maxwell did the disc and then finally managed the first colour photograph!

    Primary colors. “Right” might be a bit subjective, though.

    ‘The Trichromatic Theory’ or ‘Trichromacy’

    1-Thomas Young
    2-Hermann von Helmholtz
    3-James Clerk Maxwell

    Young, Helmholtz and JC Maxwell – colour vision principles.


  12. Primary colours of the eye


  13. dheeraj

    Thomas Young, James Clark Maxwell, and Hermann von Helmholtz

    each one was trying to get the three primary colours

    Thomas Young,Hermann von Helmholtz and James Clark Maxwell, expressed various opinions about what should be the three primary colors to describe the three primary color sensations of the eye.


  15. The primary colours:

    Thomas Young(1) originally proposed red, green, and violet,
    Hermann Von Helmholtz(2) proposed “purplish-red, vegetation-green, and an ultramarine-blue” and
    James Clerk Maxwell(3) got it right(RGB).

    three primary color sensations of the eye.
    thomas young.
    helmholtz.
    maxwell.

    That cone theory is not entirely consistent, not sure if the three colour model holds good now.

    1) Thomas Young

    2) Hermann von Helmholtz

    3) James Clerk Maxwell

    The subject discussed here is the three primary colors

    Primary Colors – for the trichromatic vision of humans

    1. Thomas Young, originally proposed the three primary colors as “red”, “green” and “voilet”
    2. Hermann von Helmholtz proposed “a slightly purplish red, a vegetation-green, and an ultramarine-blue” as the colors
    3. James Clark Maxwell,three-color method was eventually proposed by him with “red”, “green”, “blue” as the colors
