Philipp Otto Runge · Autoritratto · 1805 ca · Kunsthalle · Hamburg

Philipp Otto Runge - Philipp Otto Runge July 1777 – 2 December was a Romantic German painter and draughtsman. He made a late start to his career and died young, nonetheless he is considered among the best German Romantic painters.

The painter Philipp Otto Runge was the next German to corner the market on color wheels and their related manifestations. His 1807 model took Mayer’s notion of three “pure” colors, plus black-and-white, and spread these ideas over and inside a 3-D color sphere (complete with cross-sectioning).
