The Impact of Johannes Itten on the Early Years of the Bauhaus
MetadataShow full item record
The author discusses the teaching career and theories of Johannes Itten at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany from 1919 to 1923. Itten's theories are described within the context of his own development as an educator and member of the Bauhaus staff during the inaugural years of the school. Though the instructors who dominated after his departure largely overshadow Itten's career at the Bauhaus, it was his strong presence that forced the school into the new direction for which it would be known.
