This brilliant scarlet red is among the most favored colors of the modern style. Johannes Itten, the foremost color theorist of the 20th century and a teacher at the influential Bauhaus school of architecture, formulated his color wheel around the three primary colors. Red, used in striking contrast with bright white and black, became one of the modern movement's signature colors. Tennessee Williams' renowned play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof revolves around a southern family and the social conflicts found in southern culture. The play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955 and waslater turned into a major motion picture in 1958.
