Josef Albers, a founding member of the Bauhaus, was one of the most innovative printmakers of the twentieth century, making use of numerous print media, including etching, engraving, woodcut, lithography and screenprinting, from 1916 until his death in Connecticut in 1976.
His early graphic works illustrate the development of the rigorous modernist aesthetic for which he became synonymous, as well as a fascination for the possibilities offered by the various techniques and materials of printmaking. Albers' pervasive influence both as artist and teacher has continued until the present day and he is perhaps best remembered for his Homage to the Square images, the square proving to be the ideal vehicle for his explorations into the interaction of colour
