REVIEW FOR GOETHE'S FARBENLEHRE - A POSTER EXHIBITION
The Goethe Zentrum of Hyderabad is organising a poster exhibition called Goethe's Farbenlehre, from 6th to 12th August, at its office in Hermitage Complex, Hillfort Road. The exhibition will have 25 posters on display.
The Theory Of Colours (Zur Farbenlehre) is a 1,400-page treatise on color by Johann Wolfgang Von Gothe, which was published in 1810. It contains some of the earliest and most accurate descriptions of colored shadows and refraction, and phenomena such as dioptrical colors and achromatism/hyperchromatism. He delivered in full measure what was promised by the title of his excellent work: Data For A Theory Of Color. They are important, complete and significant data, rich material for a future theory of color.
The "German Shakespeare" Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832) is the most renowned figure of the Classic and Romantic period in Germany, which some also call the age of Goethe. Goethe earned this success not only through writing, but also through his contributions to science as a geologist, botanist, anatomist, physicist and a scientific historian.
