Abstract

In previous studies photographic projections containing only mixtures of red and white light produced a wide variety of hues. In the present experiment similar patterns were produced on a color monitor. Squares with four combinations of red and white light were studied at two mean luminances. Subjects reported that a chromaticity that appeared pink at our higher luminance appeared yellow at low luminance.
