JOSEF ALBERS "YELLOW LEVELS" WLS-I, 1966
Josef Albers's (1888-1976) iconic explorations of color and form, specifically his variations of his "Homage to the Square" compositions, are arguably the most important and distinctive creation of 20th century abstraction.
Albers's works are both the product of Bauhaus and a forefather of minimalism and hard-edge abstraction.
Art Historians credit Albers for fusing elements of American and European abstraction while influencing minimalism, hard-edge painting and Op art.
In addition to being an influence on numerous artists, he was also a significant mentor and taught major artists including Robert Rauchenberg, Cy Twombly and Eve Hesse at Black Mountain College and Yale.
This is a classic and instantly recognizable example of an Alber's signature motif from the 1960's.
