By closely following Goethe’s explanations of the colour phenomena, the reader may become so divorced from the wavelength theory-Goethe never even mentions it-that he may begin to think about colour theory relatively unhampered by prejudice, ancient or modern…The book does not have to be studied to be appreciated. Goethe’s subjective theory of colours permits him to speak most persuasively of colour harmony and aesthetics. In some readers these notions will evoke a positive response on their merits.
