Johannes Itten Attributed Bauhaus colour palette Germany 1930





Fantastic large wall art colour palette attributed to Johannes Itten, Germany 1930. This unique made wall piece was made after the color triangle designed by Johannes Itten. This was made of hand painted plywood blocks in various sizes and shapes and they can slide to left or right to create a different palette. This piece comes from Germany and is very special because of the colours used already in that time. Its a very heavy piece but easy to hang because the panels can be removed. We are not able to trace this piece back to Johannes Itten but it clearly is very old and made by his colour scheme. The piece is in very good, fully original condition.


Johannes Itten was a Swiss expressionist painter, designer, teacher, writer and theorist associated with the Bauhaus (Staatliches 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.
