Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. Back in 1665, Isaac Newton divided the rainbow into these 7 colours. In reality, rainbows are a vast spectrum of chromatic hues. The average human eye can distinguish around 100 in a rainbow, so it’s no surprise that there is a kaleidoscope of words to describe every colour under the sun.
This print celebrates these intriguing & wonderful names as an arc in their respective colours. From the familiar names of flowers & food to the more obscure minerals, chemicals & organic matter used to produce early dyes & pigments. All part of the rich & fascinating story behind the language of colour.
