Translated by Robbi Brockhaus, David Galloway, Gunter Reichwein, and Jack Ox. Exhibition catalogue, 1992: 108. He is currently Senior Curator at Slought Foundation.
In 1973, Romberg began a didactic investigation of color classification by annotating marks of color, arranged them in grids on paper or canvas. He later extended this practice to the deconstruction of color in the art historical canon.Pleynet, Marcelin. Osvaldo Romberg et lenseignement des couleurs. Editions Modernes dArt: Paris, 1979: 64.
