- The Artist
In “Study for Homage to the Square, 1970,” Josef Albers demonstrated that colors use teamwork to express themselves. The German-born Albers (1888 – 1976) broke artistic ground by revealing that colors are perceived as certain shades in relation to their adjacent colors. An abstract painter who was also a mathematician and professor at the Bauhaus, Albers pioneered revolutionary color theories in 1949 with his “Homage to the Square” series, in which hundreds of paintings and prints meticulously explored the chromatic effects of layered, colored squares. Albers' works have received theoretical and artistic acclaim and are exhibited in museums internationally. They have strongly influenced Hard Edge, Op and conceptual artists.
