Our range of Homeware and art materials inspired by the full colour spectrum as detailed in Moses Harris' 1785 Colour Wheel.
‘The Natural System of Colours, Wherein is displayed the regular and beautiful Order and Arrangement, Arising from the Three Primatives, Red, Blue and Yellow’.
Reputedly the first ever illustration of the colour spectrum in the form of a wheel, this ‘prismatic’ is one of the treasures of the RA Library. It appears in The Natural System of Colour by Moses Harris (1733-1780), a book dedicated to Sir Joshua Reynolds, the first President of the RA. It was intended to be of practical use to artists, and reflects the fundamental mission of the Academy, both then and today.
