Bezold Effect

Demonstration of the Bezold Effect. The red seems lighter combined with the white, and darker combined with the black.

The Bezold Effect is an optical illusion, named after a German professor of meteorology, Wilhelm von Bezold (1837-1907), who discovered that a colour may appear different depending on its relation to adjacent colours.
