9). Thus the path was prepared for important inventions: the telescope and the microscope. In his Dioptrice Kepler tackles the problem of vision once again. When the image appears on the retina the spiritus visivus undergoes a qualitative change. The existence of after-images proves that light produces an alteration in the retina, just as a burning-glass can scorch. These are mysterious processes which determine the final perception in the sensus communis. In the field of color vision Kepler is naturally in one respect the great initiator: he has indicated the organ in which color vision takes place.

He was an expert on the scientific work of Aristotle and the Arab scholars. Following in Robert Grosseteste's footsteps, he specialized in scientia experimentalis,and is considered as the prophet of modem natural science and technology; he foresaw telescopes, automobiles and airplanes. But the word 'experimental' was widely applied at that time, and included religious experience, magie and astrology. Bacon applies hirnself not only to theoretieal but also to practical optics. He studies refraction by letting sunlight fall into water-filled globes (corpora urinalia).

Rubens naturally knew that he could easily make green on his palette by mixing yellow and blue paint. Although Aguilonius' scheme is still peripatetic and linear, the choice of red, yellow and blue as main colors reveals an early step in the direction of the three-color system, wh ich was to become completely dominant in the future. Rubens was undoubtedly stilllooking over Aguilonius' shoulder when he wrote his description of three sorts of color mixing. There is mixing on the palette (compositio realis), washing over a color with a different transparent color (compositio intentionalis), and painting dots of different colors so close together that at a distance they cannot bedistinguished (compositio notionalis).
