An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers

Out of stock
Josef Albers had a gift for seeing art in the most basic places: painted doors, scrap yards, and buildings. He taught his students to open their eyes to "watch what's going on and capture the accident." Albers spent much of his career using different-colored rectangles and squares to study and present the way colors interact with one another. In doing so, he changed the art world forever.
