Abstract:

The series of painted papers known as the Munsell 100-Hues at 55, production numbers 101 to 200, were made on the basis of the Atlas system in which the reflectance followed the square of the value. They were originally intended to be used as standards within the Munsell Laboratory and no general sale or distribution as anticipated. The supply of the original papers is now completely exhausted. However, the series was, and remains, the most exact circuit of closely spaced colors in psychological intervals which has ever been produced. It became invaluable for certain types of visual studies and a number of laboratory researches now in progress are based upon their colorimetric properties. In addition, the series was made the basis by selection and replacement of the Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue test which has been used for research and examining purposes in several hundred industries.
