A cyanometer is an instrument for measuring 'blueness', specifically the colour intensity of blue sky. It is attributed to Horace-Bénédict de Saussure and Alexander von Humboldt.
Horace-Bénédict de Saussure. Cianómetro, 1788. Naturalist, Swiss physicist and geologist, is also known as the founder of alpinism
DENIM: Cyanometer A cyanometer is an instrument for measuring 'blueness', specifically the colour intensity of blue sky. It is attributed to Horace-Bénédict de Saussure and Alexander von Humboldt. It consists of squares of paper dyed in graduated shades of blue and arranged in a color circle or square that can be held up and compared to the color of the sky. Or perhaps for measuring the age or era of your denim.
The cyanometer is attributed to Horace-Bénédict de Saussure (1740–99), a Swiss physicist and geologist, famous for his studies of the geology, meteorology, and botany of the mountainous regions of Europe, particularly the Alps. The cyanometer had 53 sections, ranging from white to varying shades of blue (dyed with Prussian blue) and then to black, arranged in a circle. The color circle can be compared to any area of sky.
How blue is the sky? Horace Bénédict de Saussure's CYANOMETER, 1789. For his weather observations, to measure "blueness" he used suspensions of Prussian blue, dying paper squares every shade of blue he could distinguish between white and black. These were assembled into a numbered colour circle that could be held up to the zenith at a standard distance from the eye - the matching square established the degree of blue. (The color of the atmosphere indicates particles and water vapour in the air.)

So many tints/shades of the colour blue.

How blue is the sky? The cyanometer was invented in the 18th century by Horace-Bénédict de Saussure and Alexander von Humboldt, who wondered why the sky was blue. Holding it up to the sky measured the blue's intensity and lead them to suspect that the colour of the sky was dependent on the amount of suspended particles in the atmosphere. They were right.

In 1769, Jacob Christian Schäffer – a naturalist, inventor and German Evangelical superintendent of Regensburg – tackled this natural limitation of the table format in his own color system. He gave blue, red, and yellow pride of place in his hierarchy, explaining how these primary colors could be combined to create a multitude of shades in between.

In 1769 Jacob Christian Schäffer developed his own method to ensure that his books would be coloured properly. He identified 7 colours (red, yellow, blue, green, brown, white and black) and stated that all colours could be made by a mixture of these primary colours. #InlarariaStudio #inspo #colours #colors #palette

Two color circles are included as illustrations in the 1708 edition of Traité de la peinture en mignature, an artist's manual attributed to "C.B." Connections between Newtonian theories about color and this pair of circles are apparent in the design and the accompanying text. It is less clear, however, whether those theories were a direct source of inspiration. The first circle contains seven colors, violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, scarlet, and crimson.

Prismatic Shaded Colour Wheel | Moses Harris, 1766 - His Natural System of Colors, written in 1766 presented a more elaborate version of the color wheel. He preferred the format of the circle to that of the triangle for the contrasting possibilities of complimentary colors were more clearly defined.

The color wheel above rolled hard on the heels of Moses Harris’ 1766 model from the Natural Systems of Colors. This particularly fine specimen was the British entomologist’s attempt to explain the color interplay he saw in his own favorite kind of bugs, flies:

ANTIQUE COLOR WHEELS ~ ~ The story of the Color Wheel is a very interesting one which I would strongly suggest reading over at Imprint, for a full history class. But in the meantime here are visuals that are most appealing to me. All of these antique color wheels and color cards were hand made in the 16th, 17th and 18th Century.
