Formulation : Articulation, the summation of Josef Albers creative life, is now published in book form for the first time. Albers drew on over forty years work in a variety of media woodcuts, sandblasted glass pictures and oil paintings to create the 127 abstract images, which explore colour and form. This volume retains the layout of the original portfolios, with one, two or four images across two pages, and Albers comments, including key passages from his own writings, are supplied in two fold-out sections.
Josef Albers (1888 - 1976) was one of the most influential artists and theorists of the 20th century. He taught at the Bauhaus and then at Black Mountain College, North Carolina, and Yale University. T. G. Rosenthal has written books on Jack B. Yeats, Sidney Nolan and Paula Rego.
