Design and Form: The Basic Course at the Bauhaus
Hardback coffee table book discussing the history of the Basic Course taught at The Bauhaus School in 1919. By Johannes Itten, published in 1964. 190 pages.
"Itten describes his methods for encouraging the student to highly individual and creative uses of light and dark, material and texture, rhythm, expressive and subjective form, and color. Each of the nearly 200 illustrations has a detailed description which will help the reader understand the purpose of art education. The nature, pure form, and abstractions, as well as three-dimensional works and projects in the applied arts. In addition there are some very exciting documents on the evolution of modern art education."
