First published inFrench in 1839, this is one of the most influential treatises on color written during the 19th century. Neo-impressionistic painters derived their methods of painting from Chevreul's principles, applying separate touches of pure colors to the canvas and allowing the eye of the observer to combine them. The book was the outcome of his discovery that the apparent intensity and vigor of colors depended less on the pigmentation of the material used than on the hue of the neighboring fabric. After many experiments on color contrast Chevreul formulated for the first time the general principles and effects of simultaneous contrast, the modification in hue and tone that occurs when juxtaposed colors are seen simultaneously
