Book Launch 'Theory of Colours by J. W. Goethe @ Goethe-Institut Hanoi

Colours have always been of central interest, and of practical interest for artists in particular.

Representatives of the Renaissance such as Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472) and Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) studied colours in detail and suggested, among other things, a hierarchy of colors. Issac Newton (1643-1727) and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s (1749-1832) approached the topic as a phenomenon of natural science. Newton published about colours in 1665. The next moist influential publication was Goethe’s “Farbenlehre (Theory of Colours) in 1810.

A translation into the Vietnamese language has been prepared by Ngụy Hữu Tâm and Trần Vinh and published by Fine Arts Publishing House in March 2021. At the book launch two main speakers will give an orientation about the contemporary value of Goethe’s (1749-1832) “Farbenlehre (Theory of Colours).

SPEAKERS: Dang Thi Bich Ngan and Le Huy Van.
