Men like Johannes Itten who emphasized self discovery as the key to successful learning. Itten’s work on color is also said to be an inspiration for seasonal color analysis. Itten had been the first to associate color palettes with four types of people, and had designated those types with the names of seasons. Shortly after his death, his designations gained popularity in the cosmetics industry with the publication of Color Me A Season. Cosmetologists today continue to use seasonal color analysis, a tribute to the early work by Itten. Itten was a mystic, artist, and someone who pioneered in the arts.
