Edition of 11, one of only 3 known to exist by Albers Foundation
Part of Alber’s series, Structural Constellations, the design is both a departure and extension of the artist’s earlier series, the celebrated Homage to the Square paintings. Following his education at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany, Albers began his artistic career as a stained glass designer, but rarely used the medium following his emigration to the United States. This rare Albers work beautifully illustrates the artist’s ongoing exploration of colors affect on the viewer’s perception of form and space.
