Research on Josef Albers

I’m doing research today for a presentation on Josef Albers, who was a painter, teacher and philosopher educated at the Bauhaus and eventually headed the department of Design at Yale University. Below are a few images of his work that I’m incorporating into my presentation. He created a theory for teaching color that is still relevant 40 years later (in fact, our class structure is based on the teachings in his book, Interaction of Color). The works are Red and White, 1923; Upward, 1926; and Homage to the Square, 1969
