P. Huls. Aus Wikipedia. Nicht dargestellt. Auszug: Johannes Itten (11 November 1888 - 27 May 1967) was a Swiss expressionist painter, designer, teacher, writer and theorist associated with the Bauhaus (Staatliche Bauhaus) school. Together with German-American painter Lyonel Feininger and German sculptor Gerhard Marcks, under the direction of German architect Walter Gropius, Itten was part of the core of the Weimar Bauhaus.

Itten adopted principles espoused by Schneider, including the practice of not correcting his students creative work on an individual basis, for fear that this would crush the creative impulse. Rather, he selected certain common mistakes to correct for the class as a whole. He was heavily influenced by Adolf Hlzel and Franz Ciek, in Vienna using the work and textbook of Eugne Gilliard, an abstract painter, as a base.
