SIKKENS PRIZE | 1965 | JOHANNES ITTEN Color was a very important theme to Johannes Itten. He dedicated a book to this subject, 'The Art of Color'. Also, he developed a 'Farbenkreis' or 'color sphere', in which Itten organized color contrasts and identified them as harmonious color strategies. Itten once said about color: “Color is life; for a world without color appears to us as dead. Colors are primordial ideas, the children of light.”
Looking forward to the ceremony in which David Chipperfield will be presented with the Sikkens Prize, today. With music from Eric Vloeimans and Jörg Brinkmann!
