Josef Albers art prints and posters

Josef Albers was a German born artist who later immigrated to America. After learning his trade as stained glass maker he began to teach at the Bauhaus school where he co-operated with artists such as Klee and Kandinsky to form one of the most influential movements in modern art and design. After the closure of the school, due to pressure from the Nazis, Albers moved to America where he took on prestigious teaching roles at Black Mountain College and later Yale. During this period he began his Homage to the Square series, a collection of works in which a precisely determined set of nested squares explored the experience of colour. With the differing contrast of colours shifting our perception of the squares placing. Alongside these compositions Albers published several highly influential works on art theory and was commissioned to design several grand murals for buildings.
