With Regard To Colours Individually It Is A General Law Of Their





relations, confirmed by nature and the impressions of sense, that those

colours which lie nearest in nature to light have their greatest beauty

in their lightest tints: and that those which tend similarly towards

shade are most beautiful in their greatest depth or fulness, a rule of

course applying to black and white particularly. Thus, the most

beautiful yellow, like white, is that which is lightest and most vivid;

blue is most beautiful when deep and rich; while red is of greatest

beauty when of intermediate depth, or somewhat inclined to light; and

their compounds partake of these relations. We speak here only of the

individual beauty of colours, and not of that relative beauty by which

every tint, hue, and shade of colour become pleasing, or otherwise

according to space, place, and reference; for this latter beauty belongs

to the general nature and harmony of colours.
