Dutch edition with a brief introduction to the colour theory of the German chemist and Nobel Prize winner Friedrich Ostwald (1853-1932). Illustrated with drawings and with folding colour plate (3 images) in the back.
¶ Friedrich Wilhelm Ostwald was one of the founders of physical chemistry and also a passionate amateur painter. In 1916 he published 'Die Farbenfibel' (the color bible), a book that had important influence in Germany. His colour theory was influenced by Albert Munsell's, and in turn he influenced Paul Klee and members of De Stijl, including Piet Mondriaan.
