First Edition. Jean d'Udine is a pseudonym; the author's real name was Albert Cozanet, a musican who wrote numerous works on art, music and colour. His colour theories were particularly influential amomg the early Cubists especially Picabia. As is often the case with colour books, the physical format here is interesting; this work is illustrated with 10 chromolithographic plates hors texte - here they are separately printed on light weight card stock and inserted inside the front cover. D'Udine was a prolific writer on music as well as colour.
