Johannes Itten 11 November — 25 March was a Swiss expressionist painterdesigner, teacher, writer and theorist associated with the Bauhaus Staatliches Bauhaus school. From to he trained as an elementary school teacher. Itten’s studies at the Bern-Hofwil Teachers’ Academy with Ernst Schneider proved seminal for his later work as a master at the Bauhaus. Itten adopted principles espoused by Schneider, including the practice of not correcting his students’ creative work on an individual basis, for fear titen this would crush the creative impulse.

Rather, he selected certain common mistakes to correct for the class as a whole. From toItten taught at the Bauhaus, developing the innovative “preliminary course” [3] which was to teach students the basics of material characteristics, composition, and color.


His color contrasts include[d] 1 contrast by hue2 contrast by value3 contrast by temperature4 contrast by complements neutralization5 simultaneous contrast from Chevreuil6 contrast by saturation mixtures with grayand 7 contrast by extension from Goethe.

In he invited Gertrud Grunowto teach a course on the “theory of harmony” at the Bauhaus. This involved using music and relaxation techniques with the aim of improving the students’ creativity. Itten’s so called ” color sphere ” went on to include 12 colors. Itten was a follower of Mazdaznana fire cult johsnnes in the United States that was largely derived fouleur Zoroastrianism.

He observed a strict vegetarian diet and practiced meditation as a means to develop inner understanding and intuition, which was for him the principal source of artistic inspiration and practice. Georg Muchecreated conflict with Walter Gropius who wanted to move the school in a pa that embraced mass production rather than solely individual artistic expression.

Itten’s works exploring the use and composition of color resemble the square op art canvases of artists such as Josef AlbersMax Bill and Bridget Rileyand the expressionist works of Wassily Kandinsky. Itten’s work on color is also said to be an inspiration for seasonal color analysis. Itten had been the first to associate color palettes with four types couluer people, and had designated those types with the names of seasons.


His studies of color palettes and color interaction directly influenced the Op Art movement and other color abstraction base movements. Shortly after his death, his designations gained popularity in the cosmetics industry with the publication of Color Me A Season.

Cosmetologists today continue to use seasonal color analysis, a tribute to the early work by Itten. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
