synchromism

Discipline: Art

(1913)

Color theory proposed by the American artists STANTON MacDONALD-WRIGHT (1890-1973) and MORGAN RUSSELL (1886-1953) at joint exhibitions held in Munich and Paris.

Related to the color theories of neo-impressionism and orphism, synchromism asserts that color alone provides the form and subject of a painting.
