Johannes Itten

Bauhaus, was a school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught

"Johannes Itten (11 November 1888 – 27 May 1967) was a Swiss expressionist painter, designer, teacher, writer and theorist associated with theBauhaus (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."  wikipedia

"Itten's work on color is also said to be an inspiration for seasonal color analysis. Itten had been the first to associate color palettes with four types of people, and had designated those types with the names of seasons. Shortly after his death, his designations gained popularity in the cosmetics industry with the publication of Color Me A Season. Cosmetologists today continue to use seasonal color analysis, a tribute to the early work by Itten." wikipedia

"I thought you might like to know that Suzanne Caygill switched Itten's Winter and Summer, making Summer muted and Winter bright in her book (Color: The Essence of You). Angela Wright studied under Caygill and published psychology research before writing her book (The Beginner's Guide to Colour Psychology); her colors are more similar to Dressing Your Truth."  Anonymous
