Swiss artist Johannes Itten (1888–1967) was a pioneering art theorist and a prominent teacher at the Bauhaus, and he left behind an extensive and wide-ranging oeuvre. Creating paintings and graphic works to sculptures, textiles, and furniture, Itten was an unusually versatile artist who also produced one of the most important works on the theory of colors in the twentieth century. His art is examined here in depth for the first time through an analysis built on more than one hundred thousand biographical documents and sources. Published to coincide with the Bauhaus centenary, this is the second in a three-volume series that will explore the latest provenance research, compile an index of exhibitions and literature, and provide for the first time a complete overview of the artistic cosmos of Johannes Itten.

In total all three volumes reproduce more than three thousand works and expand Itten’s oeuvre by more than one thousand works compared with the previous catalogue raisonné published in 1972.
