  1. An art technique known as pointillisme may be mentioned in this regard. It was developed by the French artist Monet on the basis of suggestions offered by two physicists, Rood and Chevreul. In this method of painting, pigments are not mixed to obtain combination colors; but small streaks or dots of pigment of the fundamental colors are placed side by side on the canvas. The artistic effect is obtained by viewing the assemblage from a distance at which the eye is unable to resolve the individual points. The advantage of the method seems to be its sensitivity to contrast, intensity, and hue.
  2. The effect of absorption on the resolving power of the prism has been discussed by F. L. O. Wadsworth, Phil. Mag. 5, 355–374, (1903). The sort of arguments used there are applicable also to lens systems.
