Long before Newton, unusual varieties of rainbows had prompted sporadic scientific interest. After Newton, these varietal bows raised nagging doubts about the completeness of his answers, and ultimately would lead to powerful new rainbow theories in 19th-century optics. With these theories, we can see that “all the colors of the rainbow” are actually quite different from our preconceptions. Yet for 19th-century artists still debating the validity of Newton’s rainbow colors, these new optical theories clearly were peripheral -- the divorce between the rainbows of interest to them and to scientists was nearly complete. Ironically, the 19th century produced some of the strongest claims about the unity of artistic and scientific enterprise, testimony to the rainbow bridge’s tenuous power.
