The famous basic course at the Bauhaus, Weimar, was designed as a trial period for students and to teach elementary design as a basis for future careers. Walter Gropius invited Joahnnes Itten (1888-1967) to organise the course. His wife, Anneliese, revised and updated his account of it, first published in 1963, which includes visual examples and descriptions of the refinements made by him in his later teaching work in Berlin, Krefeld and Z?rich.
