I'm just reading a book by Vladimir Nabokov :)
Also I think it's cool that Da Vinci had it :)

What an interesting list of people. How curious. How did you find these people to your list? A great majority of them are certainly news to me.

It would be interesting to know how these peoples' colour associations might have influenced some of their creative work. I know a story of Jean Sibelius that claims he was inspired by colours of his striped carpet.
Also, I once read a little story of Vincent van Gogh, where his organ teacher, frightened, refused continue his lessons because he kept referring to notes as Cadmium and Preussian blue. So, he might be a likely addition to your list.

Where did the list come from?
I would really appreciate it if you could direct me to the source of your list.
