Josef Albers (1888-1976) is an important figure affiliated with numerous movements that have defined visual culture in the 20th century. 
 
The artist is credited for fusing elements of American and European abstraction while influencing Minimalism, Hard-Edge Abstraction and Op Art.
 
Albers was a student and later a professor at the Bauhaus in Germany. After the prestigious academy was closed by the Nazis, Albers and his wife Anni (a noted textile designer) emigrated to the United States.
 
This print is part of Albers’ "Structural Constellations" series, created from the 50s to the early 60s. The blind embossings were created from 1958-1962.
 
This inkless intaglio is an excellent example of the artist’s mastery of geometric form, where raised lines create increasingly intricate forms. Albers, using a mechanical engraving process, aimed to de-personalize the designs, rendering them as purely functional as possible.
 
With these spider-like lines, the viewer’s perspective is tangled. Triangles and trapezoids melt into receding and advancing folds of rectangles.
 
Albers’ work is instantly recognizable and collected internationally.
