Josef Albers

Nasce a Bottrop, in Germania nel 1888. Studia a Berlino, Monaco e a Weimar al Bauhaus dove, dal 1923 fino alla chiusura della scuola, svolge un’importante attività didattica, che porta avanti negli anni successivi negli Stati Uniti. Il suo lavoro è una continua ricerca sul colore e sull'illusionismo ottico che culmina in un nuovo tipo di arte astratta la quale, pur partendo dalle basilari esperienze costruttiviste, si arricchisce di implicazioni psicologiche ed emotive ricercate nei complessi modi di esperienza visiva, di cui esempio è la serie Homage to the square.
