4to. Cloth in dust jacket. 223 pp. Catalogues and illustrates 350 editions by Albers (1888-1976). 512 illustrations of which 311 are in color. New.--Revised edition featuring 13 newly catalogued prints, updated introductory essay incorporating new scholarship, and up-to-date bibliography and exhibitions list --Publication coincides with celebrating the 90th anniversary of the school and Bauhaus movement in which Albers was a major figure --Important Bauhaus exhibition at New York's MoMA opening November 2009 One of the great abstract artists and art teachers of the twentieth century, Josef Albers (1888-1976) influenced generations of artists with his color theories. Born in Germany and a leading figure at the Bauhaus from 1929 to 1933, he settled in the United States in 1934, and later taught at Yale University. As author Brenda Danilowitz writes, the processes and excitement of printmaking fulfilled many of Albers's loftiest dreams. He relished its implicit detachment: the way that the medium removed his hand at least one step from the end result. He appreciated the possibilities of texture available, and treasured the multitude of color choices available in ink, a range he often said was far greater than was available with paints. This revised catalogue raisonné makes important additions to the record of Albers's great accomplishment in the print medium, and its arrival is particularly timely this year.

Reseña del editor:

Josef Albers was one of the most important and influential artists and teachers of the 20th century, from the Bauhaus in Germany, through Black Mountain College, North Carolina, to Yale. His "Homage to the Square" series of paintings and prints is one of the landmark achievements of abstraction. This is a catalogue raisonne of his work, covering the years 1915 to 1976. Colour is the key to Albers's art and this volume reproduces in colour every work that includes colour, including many special trial proofs. There are more than 350 prints in every conceivable graphic medium, as well as more than 100 print-related items, including Albers's influential record-album covers.
