'Color Problems' Book

This 'practical manual for the lay student of color' (1901) by Emily Noyes Vanderpool, provided a prescient look at colour theory. An artist, collector, scholar, and historian Color Problems also showcases Vanderpool's wildly original approaches to colour analysis and interaction, foreshadowing 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'.
