Not absolutely forgotten, Gigalot!:

Church also wrote another book called Colour in 1871, expanded and republished as Colour: an elementary guide for students in 1887, which proved popular enough to be reissued in at least six editions up to 1911. Along with similar popular books by Benson, Bezold, Rood, J. S. Taylor and others, the book gives a good explanation of the then recent Helmholtz-Maxwell revolution in our understanding of colour and its implications for artists.

I've seen some people here make the assumption that "traditional" (Ittenian/red-yellow-blue) colour theory has been the basis of art education continuously for centuries; but this certainly wasn't true of late 19th and early 20th century academically trained painters.

Those books are READABLE, while many newest books are almost or completely "NON-READABLE" stuff:crying: :D I guess, the "forgotten" is an art of book creation.
