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.”
