    with the same name the colors change along the years... for sure in the past some brilliant colors were difficult to be obtained with manual technology and poor material available.

    many illustrator read the description and think to modern interpretation of the colors...

    All colours are relative to the light and to other colours surrounding them. So
    it helps if we don't constrain ourselves by choosing them in absolute terms, as
    if isolated by a colour-picker. An absolute version of Amaranthe, for example,
    when placed against another colour - a Green say - might well look wrong and
    unbalanced to the eye and need corrective adjustment. I often see figures that
    although meticulously painted with exquisite details and everything, for me fail
    because the colours jar and sometimes actually work against each other. Far
    better for us to see colours relatively and balance their values and saturation
    with each other harmoniously.
