Interaction of color : text of the original edition with revised plate section by Josef Albers( Book )

12 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Josef Albers' "Interaction of Color" is a masterwork in twentieth-century art education. Conceived as a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors, and students, this timeless book presents Albers' unique ideas of colour experimentation in a way that is valuable to specialists as well as to a larger audience. Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 colour plates, "Interaction of Color" first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten representative colour studies chosen by Albers. The paperback has remained in print ever since and remains one of the most influential resources on colour for countless readers. This new paperback edition presents a significantly expanded selection of more than thirty colour studies alongside Albers' original unabridged text, demonstrating such principles as colour relativity, intensity, and temperature; vibrating and vanishing boundaries; and the illusion of transparency and reversed grounds. In a larger format and with enhanced production values, this expanded edition celebrates the unique authority of Albers' contribution to colour theory and brings the artist's iconic study to an eager new generation of readers

Albers and Moholy-Nagy : from the Bauhaus to the new world by Josef Albers( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully illustrated book highlights the contrasts and correspondences in the lives and work of two of Modernism's greatest innovators, Josef Albers (1888-1976) and László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1947). Beginning in the 1930s, Albers and Moholy-Nagy each developed a rigorously abstract language that condensed art to its visual fundamentals: line, color, texture, light, and form. This language experienced a creative explosion during their Bauhaus years, when both artists moved freely between media and disciplines. Essays by leading scholars follow the artists' separate paths through to their emigration to the United States, where each continued to push tirelessly the conventions of artistic practice--Albers at Black Mountain College in North Carolina and then at Yale University, and Moholy-Nagy in Chicago at the New Bauhaus School and the Institute of Design. As highly influential teachers, Albers and Moholy-Nagy became important catalysts for the transmission of Modernist ideas from Europe to America

Poems and drawings. Gedichte und Zeichnungen by Josef Albers( Book )

15 editions published between 1958 and 2006 in English and German and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Poems and Drawings, first published in 1958, Josef Albers attempted to penetrate the meaning of art and life by the simplest, most disciplined means. This project was extremely important to Albers, who used its format to create complementary forms in both word and line that appear deceptively simple until they begin to disclose the author{u2019}s insights into nature, art, and life. Conceived as a kind of artist{u2019}s book, the publication features 22 of Albers{u2019}s refined line drawings alongside the same number of his original poems{u2014}each appearing in both English and German. Printed initially in a limited edition and long out of print, this new edition of Poems and Drawings replicates Albers{u2019}s original book design and includes four previously unpublished poems that reveal playful and tender details behind Albers{u2019}s personal relationships, along with a new introduction by Nicholas Fox Weber. For admirers of Albers, Poems and Drawings will provide a closer look at a celebrated artist who was also an affectionate and articulate writer
Josef Albers : formulation : articulation by T. G Rosenthal( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Josef Albers's Formulation: Articulation, issued as a limited edition set of prints in 1972 and published here in book form for the first time, is a unique opportunity to understand the ideas and methods of one of the most influential artists and theorists of the twentieth century. Albers drew on over forty years' work in a variety of media - woodcuts, sandblasted glass pictures and oil paintings - for these rigorous yet lyrical explorations of colour and form, and they can be seen as the summation of his creative life." "All the elements of Albers's thinking and experience on colour and geometrical relationships are embodied in Formulation: Articulation. The series of prints were carefully sequenced by the artist so that they can be examined and appreciated for their visual interaction or as striking works of art in their own right. Statements by Albers about the images are provided on two fold-out sections and the text by the art critic T.G. Rosenthal sets the volume within the context of Albers's life and work."--Jacket

Josef Albers : minimal means, maximum effect : March 28-July 6, 2014, Fundación Juan March by Josef Albers( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surveying works in all media, Josef Albers: Minimum Media, Maximum Effect offers a new comprehensive monograph of Josef Albers (1888-1976) focusing on the artist's abiding concern for clarity and simplicity. As the title suggests, Albers strove to attain the maximum effect with minimal media. This selection of works demonstrates the continuity of Albers' austere and luminous vision, as it permeated his teaching, furniture and design objects, photography, typographical design and his writings, from his early years as a schoolteacher in Germany and the Bauhaus years to the end of his artistic and teaching career at Yale. His prolific artistic output ranged from furniture design and figurative line drawing to engraving and painting, including his renowned Homage to the Square. This substantial, 362-page survey is exhilarating in its scope, encompassing some 170 works, archival documents such as Albers' notes and journals, and dozens of essays and scholarly discourses on art, pedagogy and philosophy. This carefully designed volume illuminates Albers' artistry and teachings and allows the reader to appreciate the incredible technical skill and the clarity of vision behind his apparently simple works
