Directly opposite each other on the colour wheel developed by the Swiss Expressionist painter Johannes Ittens (1888-1967) are fully saturated colours: green and red. Ittens, described them as complementary colours, having the same brilliance. The Dutch Post-Impressionist Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) used saturated greens for the ceiling of Le Café de nuit in Arles. Expressionist painting uses blocks of unmixed colour to express emotion.
Restoration of Michelangelo Buonarroti's Sistine Chapel ceiling, in Rome, and the Feast of of the Gods (Giovanni Bellini, Titian) in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C., has brought out original, saturated greens of tunics and skirts.
