Capturing colored light and vanished impressions from a bygone era; hearing the thoughts buzzing inside a woman's patiently bended head; revealing the palimpsest layers of color theory's history; training the eye to see the old inside the new, the new inside the old -- those are indeed all wonderful things to ponder. -Printmag.com The plates display an aesthetic decades ahead of its time.... her pared-down, geometric way of expressing color is nothing short of remarkable. - 'This Forgotten Female Artist Taught Us Everything We Know About Color', Surface Magazine It's something that people all over the world [can appreciate], ' Schaff says.

Emily Noyes Vanderpoel (1842-1939) was an artist, collector, scholar, and historian working at the dawn of the 20th century. Her work in color theory was decades ahead of it's time in design aesthetics and interpretation.

Emily Noyes Vanderpoel (1842-1939) was an artist, collector, scholar, and historian working at the dawn of the 20th century. Her first and most prominent work, Color Problems: A Practical Manual for the Lay Student of Color, provides a comprehensive overview of the main ideas of color theory at the time, as well as her wildly original approaches to color analysis and interaction. Through a 21st century lens, she appears to stumble upon midcentury design and minimalism decades prior to those movements. Presenting her work as a painting manual under the guise and genre of flower painting and the decorative arts-- subjects considered "appropriate" for a woman of her time--she was able to present a thoroughly studied, yet uniquely poetic, approach to color theory that was later taken up and popularized by men and became ubiquitous in contemporary art departments. Her remarkable inventiveness shines in a series of gridded squares, each 10 x 10, that analyze the proportions of color derived from actual objects: Assyrian tiles, Persian rugs, an Egyptian mummy case, and even a teacup and saucer. Vanderpoel had a deep knowledge of ceramics and analyzed many pieces from her personal collection. She leaves her process relatively mysterious but what is clear, as historian and science blogger John Ptak notes, is that Vanderpoel "sought not so much to analyze the components of color itself, but rather to quantify the overall interpretative effect of color on the imagination".

Very nice book. Must read for all beginner watercolour painters out there.
Emily Noyes Vanderpoel. This is a relatively spectacular book about color-work. Her analytical approach was quite brilliant and basically it has not been surpassed in, now, more than a hundred. Even so, I have other research interests in the work of Emily Noyes Vandepoel. That said, this beautiful book, a beautiful pile of color "tiles" will stay with me as a particular piece of treasure. We should all run and acquire "Emily Noyes Vanderpoel" bumper stickers. We could vote for her or sing for her or visit her burial site. She deserves to be remembered for her very thoughtful work and understanding of many things.
Color Theory Love Color and color theory is a pet project of mine. I have many, many books on the subject. I added this one to my collection and I was not disappointed. The color plates and wonderful, crisp, and clear, and I really enjoy reading the texts. So glad this was made and glad to see a woman in this area getting more acknowledgement.
Came as soon as published! Really happy to receive this so quickly. It's an amazing early work on color.
I arrived on time. This was a Christmas gift and he really likes it.
Designer, you need this Beautiful piece of nostalgia still crucial today.
Beautiful Book! Captivating!
