Luigi Veronesi - Colours
Luigi Veronesi, 1945
A delightful first colour theory book. Full of Veronesi's research on photography and abstract cinema, it is still today an example of graphic refinement and educational clarity. In the first part of the volume, the three primary colours and their complementaries are associated with everyday objects, while the latter, is dedicated to their overlapping, giving rise to real "works" of abstract painting.
Luigi Veronesi (Milan, 1908-1998) was an Italian photographer, painter, scenographer and film director.
"He always thought art as an instrument that involves all the aspects of the aesthetic experience, and investigated its relationship with the age of mechanization.
Famous for his colour transpositions of music scores, he was a member of the MAC (Movement for Concrete Art) and one of the most “european” among Italian abstract painters. He also was one of the first authors to use photography in childrens’ books."
