Josef Albers

Josef Albers (1888–1976) was a German artist, a member of the Bauhaus who then emigrated to the United States, with his wife Anni Albers, with the onset of Nazism. Best known as an abstract painter, he was in actual fact an eclectic artist, skilled in the handling of glass and metal, as well as in designing furniture and dealing with print processes. A major retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, 1971) paid homage to a great “total” artist—he also wrote books, articles and poems—who was also the teacher of Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Sheila Hicks and the British graphic artist Alan Fletcher, among others.
