Albers and Moholy-Nagy : from the Bauhaus to the new world by Josef Albers ( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 533 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

Josef Albers : formulation : articulation by T. G Rosenthal ( Book )
9 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 282 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."--BOOK JACKET
