Title Design and Form
Author Johannes Itten
Publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Design and Form is the most complete document of one of the land marks of modern education in art – the famous Basic Course at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany. Each of the over 200 illustrations reproduced here is described in detail to help the reader understand the purpose of art teaching. The students’ original works include studies of nature, pure forms and abstractions, three-dimensional work, and projects in the applied arts. In addition, the book includes exciting material on the evaluation of modern art education.
The book has universal appeal for a basic course as a means for individual creative growth and it can be used today by students and art teachers as a foundation for their own basic course.
