Sound & Colour, their Relations, Analogies & Harmonies. John Denis Macdonald. 1869.

I hope to investigate this in a future post.

“And here I will express my conviction that a colour-art exactly analogous to the sound-art of music is possible…Nor do I see why it should not equal any in the splendour of its results and variety of its applications.”
