Johannes Itten

Great Masters in Art
When the State Bauhaus opened in Weimar in 1918, the Swiss artist and art theorist Johannes Itten (1888–1967) was one of the first teachers to be appointed by Walter Gropius. With his preliminary course Itten had a considerable effect on the creative training in the Bauhaus; to this day his insights into the theory of colours set standards in art education and in the field of design.

Georgiana Houghton - Hilma af Klint - Emma Kunz
Abstract paintings were being produced even before Kandinsky. Completely independently from each other, Georgiana Houghton (1814–1884) in England, Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) in Sweden and Emma Kunz (1892–1963) in Switzerland developed an individual, abstract pictorial language. What they had in common was a desire to make visible the laws of nature, the intellect and the supernatural. Their works are being presented side by side for the first time in an exhibition.

It focuses on the artist’s colour concept, an aspect of his oeuvre which has hitherto not been examined in detail, as well as his passionate study of subjects from his garden in Giverny.

Expressionistic and imbued with colour, the work of Rita De Muynck draws the observer into an autonomous world of experience. Dreams, the vigorous subconscious and synesthesia find sensual expression in her large figurative paintings and witty day and night drawings. This lavishly illustrated book presents her work from 1998 to 2013, accompanied by literary and scientific essays as well as personal contributions.
