This is an insightful retrospective of the career of Josef Albers, whose work underpins some of the 20th-century's most influential art education programs. Josef Albers: Minimal Means, Maximum Effect is a magnificently illustrated retrospective of the work of Josef Albers (1888-1976), a German-born American artist, whose work has formed the basis of some of the twentieth-century's most influential art education programs. Comprising more than one hundred works of art in addition to furniture, objects, photographs, and a range of documentary material. This volume presents the work of Albers as a project equally characterized by its coherence and its search for simplicity, its productive use of deliberately limited means and resources, its respect for manual labour and its emphasis on experimentation with colour, taking material shape in a body of work with a marked poetic and spiritual content. It also explores Albers' working process and his reflection about teaching, his theoretical and practical activities - he was a student and later a professor at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau, and a teacher at Black Mountain College and finally at Yale University.
