Translated with notes by Charles Lock Eastlake.

Goethe’s conclusions have been repudiated, but no one quarrels with his reporting of the facts to be observed. With simple objects–vessels, prisms, lenses, and the like–the reader will be led through a demonstration course not only in subjectively produced colors, but also in the observable physical phenomena of color.
