Color Problems: A Practical Manual for the Lay Student of Color


| /

This groundbreaking book from 1901 by Emily Noyes Vanderpool provided a prescient look at colour theory. An artist, collector, scholar, and historian, Vanderpool's wildly original approaches to colour analysis and interaction foreshadowed mid-century design and minimalism decades prior to those movements. Her approach to colour theory became ubiquitous in contemporary art departments and her illustrations 'compete with the best work of some of the most important twentieth-century artists'.
