On 1-1-12 a new group was formed called Wikimedia Foundation (part of Wikipedia), Sue Gardner said she started it in 2007. On this page she asks for donations for a color wheel miraculously appearing in the second position in a Google search for "color wheel". This page had been # 1 for the 10 years it has been up. Until it disappeared from the search engines, not to be found in the 50 pages of Google. The Real Color Wheel worked it's way back to #1 in a few months.

The Real Color Wheel is under attack again, this time by Sue Gardner of Wikimedia Foundation Inc.. She is showing a fake color wheel claiming it was made in 1908. I'll go through each color and name on her color wheel. But first let me say in 1908 the colors painted on this color wheel were not available at that time.

#1, Yellow. 1797, COLOR, Chrome Yellow and Orange, neutral lead salts colored by chromous acid, Van Gogh would use it in his "Sunflowers" painting one hundred years later, it was the current best opaque yellow used in 1908. Today Van Gogh's have turned brownish, lead turns brown in time, her color wheel still has a pure yellow. It was not made in 1908 by J. A.. H. Hett of D. V. Nostrand Co. All colorwheels until mine had a maximum of 12 colors. Here are the images, Art History is being Re-written.

Next on her color wheel is #2 orange yellow, #3 orange, #4 orange red, #5 red, #6 Scarlet red, #7 scarlet, # 8 crimson, #9 magenta, In 1908 there was no color matching this pure representation of magenta, # 10 purple magenta. #11 purple, #12 purple violet, #13 violet, #14 blue violet, #15 blue, blueish cyan, #16 cyan blue, #17 greenish cyan, #18 turquoise, #19 bluish green, #20 green, #21 sap green, #22 yellow green, #23 lemon yellow

Chardin, 1699-1779, He used the new Prussian blue in "Boy Drawing" in 1737.
Matthew Luckiesh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, Color and its applications, D. Van Nostrand Co., New York; 1916 "Light And Shade And Their Applications", D. Van Nostrand Co., New York; 1917 "The ...
Luckiesh wrote numerous books and articles on light and other aspects of physics, including Color and Colors, in 1938.

100 B/C, COLOR, IRON. Pompiian blue lake, a ferris-cyan-color, Roman.
1781, COLOR, Turner's Yellow, became very popular, an opaque lead oxychloride.
1797, COLOR, Chrome Yellow and Orange, neutral lead salts colored by chromous acid, Van Gogh would use it in his "Sunflowers" painting one hundred years later, it was the current best opaque yellow used in 1908, today it is encapsulated so it can be used with any pigment.
1705, COLOR, Prussian Blue, a dual-tone transparent color that was getting close to cyan in its transparent undertone made from Iron.
1817. COLOR, Cadmium Yellow Sulfide and Cadmium Sulfoselenide Orange, the selenium element resembles sulfur.
1826, COLOR, Permanent Alizarin (it was not as permanent as PR122 is) was discovered in natural root Madder Lake, the purpurin was subtracted with sulfuric acid. It was the closest to magenta up to that time.
1856, COLOR, Perkins Mauve, later called Alizarin Madder Lake or Alizarin Crimson.Perkins discovered aniline colors, from coal tar. It was the closest to magenta up to that time but still not really permanent.
1859, COLOR, Magenta, the year the named color Magenta was born. It got its name from the location of a battle in Italy even though Magenta is not blood red. It was transparent, that was good, but fugitive.
1870, COLOR, Cerulean Blue, opaque, permanent, Cobaltous Stannate, cobalt oxide and tin oxide. This color is a tint of cyan.
1900, COLOR, Mapico (brand) Colors, Permanent Mars Colors, Synthetic Iron Oxides, Yellow, Orange, Red, Brown.
1935, COLOR, England, Cyan Blue as it was called by printers, Copper Phthalocyanine, alpha crystal or metal free Phthalocyanine, with a metallic atom removed from copper. THIS WAS A MOST IMPORTANT COLOR DISCOVERY, THE INERT PRIMARY BLUE, CYAN TRANSPARENT, permanent.
1936 COLOR, Phthalo Green, chlorinated and brominated Copper Phthalocyane, from Blue Green to Yellow Green transparent.
1975 COLOR, Liquitex was the first to make a perfect transparent magenta, they called it Acra Violet, I was using in in 1975-6, then Quinacridone Magenta, PR:122.
2008 COLOR, Magenta is broken down even farther. Opera Magenta.

1755, THEORY, Tobios Mayer, Color theory by math, but he picked the wrong triad colors, red, blue and yellow.
1809, THEORY, Otto Runge, His color wheel has White at the top and Black on bottom, the colors wrap around the middle of the sphere, He also chose the wrong primary colors. Red, Yellow, and Blue opaque plus the pigment Black for shades, a bad habit.
1810, THEORY, Goethe made a double intersecting triangle color wheel. A six color wheel without Magenta or Cyan. Blood red was opposite Emerald Green instead of Cyan. Van Gogh was influenced and Matisse used his oppositions.
1839, THEORY, Chevreul ( Chevrule ) made a twelve color wheel, Yellow, Red, and Blue again
1879, THEORY, Ogden Rood made a double cone color model with White on top and Black at the bottom, Red, Green and Blue was his triad. There still was no Magenta or Cyan, but this was still major.
1880, THEORY, Ewald Hering came up with three opposing sets of colors, Yellow and Ult. Blue, Red and Green, and Black and White. A little different from the rest.
1905, THEORY, Albert Munsell, He made a five color wheel with no triad. The principle colors he did have were, red, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
1916, THEORY, The last color wheel (square) of college record was by Church-Ostwald. It has Yellow, Red, Sea Green and Ult. Blue at the corners. It made way for the new coal-tar colors, all pigments were replaced by there top-tone matching colors.
1950, THEORY, ROYGBIV, was the new answer for 1950 masses, from the old source Newton.

This is the fake color wheel supposed to be printed by D. Van Nostrand Co. in 1908. Cyan wasn't called a color back then, the only color magenta back then was fugitive and would never lasted to today. I talked to D. Van Nostrand Co., they are located in Princeton now with very good records, they have no knowledge of this faked color wheel. The Colorist is a fraud.
