About

Screenprint in brilliant Colors on wove paper, 1972 From “Josef Albers: Son Oeuvre et Sa Contribution à Figuration Visuelle Au Cours Du XXe Siècle” Printed with an additional image verso as issued Images 8.75 x 8.75 inches Sheet: 10.5 x 12 inches Published by Dessain et Tolra - 1972 Serigraphs by Herbert Geier, Ingolstadt, Germany & Ives-Sillman, Inc., New Haven, Connecticut, USA Unsigned, unnumbered as issued ---------------------- Josef Albers (March 19, 1888 – March 25, 1976) was a German-born American artist and educator whose work, both in Europe and in the United States, formed the basis of modern art education programs of the twentieth century. Accomplished as a designer, photographer, typographer, printmaker, and poet, Albers is best remembered for his work as an abstract painter and theorist. He favored a very disciplined approach to composition. Most famous of all are the hundreds of paintings and prints that make up the series, Homage to the Square. In this rigorous series, begun in 1949, Albers explored chromatic interactions with nested squares. Usually painting on Masonite, he used a palette knife with oil colors and often recorded the colors he used on the back of his works. Each painting consists of either three or four squares of solid planes of color nested within one another, in one of four different arrangements and in square formats ranging from 406×406 mm to 1.22×1.22 m
