Magenta lies on the color wheel between violet and rose, and therefore it is a pure chroma. In the arts of painting, and photography, color theory is a set of basic rules for mixing color to achieve a desired result. ... Violet (named after the flower violet) is used in two senses: first, referring to the color of light at the short-wavelength end of the visible spectrum, approximately 380â€“420 nanometres (this is a spectral color). ... Rose is the colour that is defined in colour theory as being the colour halfway between red and magenta (the web color fuchsia) on the color wheel. ... Chroma may refer to: Chroma, short for Chromatics, the science of color. ...

In popular usage, the term magenta itself can be used to indicate a variety of colors. For the names of various of the colors in the magenta range, see the section at the bottom of this article called "Shades of Magenta".

Magenta is not a spectral but an extraspectral color: it cannot be generated by light of a single wavelength. Humans, being trichromats, can only see as far as 380 nanometers into the spectrum, i.e., as far as violet. The visible spectrum is the portion of the optical spectrum (light or electromagnetic spectrum) that is visible to the human eye. ... The wavelength is the distance between repeating units of a wave pattern. ... A trichromat is an organism for which the perceptual effect of any arbitrarily chosen light from its visible spectrum can be matched by a mixture of no more than three different pure spectral lights. ... In most modern usages of the word spectrum, there is a unifying theme of between extremes at either end. ... Violet is primarily used to describe a color often confused with purple. ...

## Could tetrachromats see magenta on the spectrum? GA_googleFillSlot("encyclopedia_square");

Some have speculated humans might be able to see red-violet (purple) and magenta on the spectrum if we could see farther into the ultraviolet like tetrachromats (such as birds) which can see into the ultraviolet as far as 300 nanometers. Ophthalmologists report that those who have had their retinal lenses removed and replaced with clear plastic can see a "lilac" (i.e., a red-violet) color on the spectrum beyond violet, so, following this reasoning, magenta would be the next color over. [1] Red-violet is a color made by mixing the hues red and violet, so it might be seen as either a darker red or a lighter violet. ... In most modern usages of the word spectrum, there is a unifying theme of between extremes at either end. ... Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light, but longer than soft X-rays. ... A tetrachromat is an organism for which the perceptual effect of any arbitrarily chosen light from its visible spectrum can be matched by a mixture of no more than four different pure spectral lights. ... Orders Many - see section below. ... Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light, but longer than soft X-rays. ... Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine which deals with the diseases of the eye and their treatment. ... Species About 20 species; see text. ... Red-violet is a color made by mixing the hues red and violet, so it might be seen as either a darker red or a lighter violet. ...

Others regard the foregoing speculation as problematic: colors are often considered not to be external realities, but representations or constructions by the (human) psyche so that there is no necessary connection between any electro-magnetic wavelength and a subjective color perception. There would then be no reason why a creature whose eyes are stimulated by ultraviolet would not simply connect this wavelength with the experience of violet. If the creature were a true tetrachromat, connecting magenta with the fourth sensor type would necessitate the use of a new experience type for the combination of red and blue light. Lastly, exactly the same argument could be construed for infrared.

## History of the discovery of magenta

Magenta was one of the first aniline dyes, discovered shortly after the Battle of Magenta (1859), which occurred near the town of Magenta in northern Italy. The color was originally called fuchsine or roseine, but for marketing purposes in 1860 the color name was changed to magenta after the battle. Hence, the color is named indirectly after the town. Aniline, phenylamine or aminobenzene (C6H5NH2) is an organic chemical compound which is a primary aromatic amine consisting of a benzene ring and an amino group. ...

## Electronic magenta vs. pigment magenta

Note that while both of these colors are called magenta they are actually substantially different from one another. Printer's (or pigment) magenta (the color used for magenta printing ink) is much less vivid than the color electronic magenta achievable on a computer screen--indeed, CMYK printing technology cannot accurately reproduce pure magenta as described above as electronic magenta (1/2 100% blue light + 1/2 100% red light=magenta) on paper. To see the difference between electronic magenta and printer's magenta, compare the two magentas (additive and subtractive) in the two charts in the Primary colors article. Piece of A4 paper Paper is a thin material produced by the amalgamation of plant fibres, which are subsequently held together without extra binder, largely by hydrogen bonds and to a large degree by fiber entanglement. ... Primary Colors, a 1996 novel by Anonymous (later revealed by Donald Foster to be journalist Joe Klein), is a roman Ã  clef about U.S. President Bill Clintons first presidential campaign in 1992. ...

When electronic magenta is reproduced on paper, it is called fuchsia and it is physically impossible for it to appear on paper as vivid as on a computer screen. In order to reproduce it, a small amount of cyan printer's ink must be added to printer's magenta to make fuchsia, and therefore fuchsia is not a primary color of pigment--it is the color of printer's magenta that is one of the primary colors of pigment (along with cyan and yellow). Cyan is a pure spectral color, but the same hue can also be generated by mixing equal amounts of green and blue light. ... Yellow is any color of light that stimulates both the red and green cone cells of the retina, but not the blue cone cells. ...

The name fuchsia was chosen as the alias for electronic magenta because that is the color name for the color that in printed reproduction is its equivalent.

 Magenta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1837 words) Magenta lies on the color wheel between violet and rose, and therefore it is a pure chroma. Magenta was one of the first aniline dyes, discovered shortly after the Battle of Magenta (1859), which occurred near the town of Magenta in northern Italy. Before printer's magenta was invented in the 1890s for CMYK printing, and electric magenta was invented in the 1980s for computer displays, these two artificially engineered colors were preceded by the color displayed at right, which is the color originally called magenta made from coal tar dyes in the year 1859.
