The Munsell Color System

 

Appendix - Page 2

 


The following problems are chosen from daily life.
They suggest a harmonious arrangement of color in:

 

A Room
  Wall Paper Trimming
HUE Yellow-Red Yellow-Red
VALUE Light  7/ Dark  3/
CHROMA Weak  /1 Strong  /6
  YR  7/1 YR  3/6
  7 X 1 = 7 3 X 6 = 18
AREA 18 Parts 7 Parts *

 

A Basket of Chrysanthemums
  Flowers Leaves and Basket
HUE Yellow Green-Yellow
VALUE High  8/ Low  3/
CHROMA Strong  /8 Weak  
  Y  8/8 GY  3/3
  8 X 8 = 64 3 X 3 = 9
AREA 9 Parts 64 Parts *

 

A Dress
  Dress Embroidery
HUE Purple-Blue Yellow
VALUE Low  3/ High  8/
CHROMA Weak  /2 Strong  /8
  PB  3/2 Y  8/8
  3 X 2 = 6 8 X 8 = 64
AREA 64 Parts 6 Parts *

 

By way of summary, it may be said that the Munsell Color System is not an inflexible scientific formula. It is rather an expression of some of the fundamental truths about color, which incomplete as they may be, are far superior to anything that has been yet discovered in the field of color theory and practice.

A. E. O. Munsell
