Josef Albers (March 19, 1888–March 25, 1976) is one of the forefathers of the Op Art movement and a famed color theorist painter. While at the prestigious Bauhaus school of crafts and fine arts, Albers was exposed to some of the most influential artists of the 20th century, including Oskar Schlemmer, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee.
Pictured is Albers’s portfolio Ten Variants (1967), one of his most unique series of prints, which is now live for bidding on artnet Auctions.
