Newton’s Color Wheel Precedes the US
The color wheel precedes the US concerning the fact that it is one of the oldest modern democracies. Indeed, in 1706, Newton invented the color wheel by splitting white sunlight into six colors. The perception that light alone was responsible for color was really helpful for artists. Newton used a Dorian mode to compare the colors in the spectrum to a run of musical notes similar to a white-note scale on the piano, starting at point D.
