Josef Albers - Germany

Art Brokerage: Josef Albers German/American Artist: March 19, 1888 – March 25, 1976. Josef Albers is well known for his compositions that explore the relationships of color through a single, simple form, usually the square. In choosing the square, Joseph Albers revealed his knowledge of the work of Kasimir Malevich and Piet Mondrian, both of whom had explored the form's spiritual and formal possibilities. Albers was also aware of the Neo-Platonic significance of the square as a pure form. His main interest, though, was in color and understanding the rules guiding visual experience. This was an interest that had been sparked at the Bauhaus by Paul Klee's introductory courses, where superimposed squares demonstrated compositional and spatial effects. Joseph Albers developed his own theories regarding spatial effects, contrasts, and harmonies of colors. He in published an influential book Interaction of Color in 1963, which elucidated his color theories. He was a key faculty member at Black Mountain College until 1949, and, also taught at times, at Harvard University. In 1950 Joseph Albers became the head of the Department of Design at Yale University. A venerated teacher and theorist, Albers died in New Haven in 1976. Listings wanted.
