It is one of the few documents which shows him concentratedly at work on a single philosophical issue. The principal theme is the features of different colours, of different kinds of colour (metallic colour, the colours of flames, etc.) and of luminosity--a theme which Wittgenstein treats in such a way as to destroy the traditional idea that colour is a simple and logically uniform kind of thing. This edition consists of Wittgenstein's basic German text, together with an English translation.Hide synopsis

this small book is a very complete course in opening your eyes to how color actually is seen. i have read a lot of books on vision and color perception and this book with its examples helped bring the different theories together. i don't know if it will make you a better painter but it has helped me.
