Since 2015, the theortical Nachlass of Fritz Seitz (1926-2017) has been placed in the Willi Baumeister Foundation, Germany. Currently a thematic catalogue on this Nachlass is being developed. His publications on color include i.e., 36 illustrated essays, published from 1962 to 1984. As both Artist and Professor (preliminary course), Seitz, innovatively combined color theory and its application.

Esther Hagenlocher, Associate Professor, University of Oregon, U.S.A., is developing a first-time scientific approach to this oeuvre on color pedagogy and applied color which will be available in English.

This research is in collaboration with the Willi Baumeister Foundation, Germany and the Baumeister Archive in the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Germany.
