  • Artist - Josef Albers - Biography
    Josef Albers was a German artist and teacher whose work formed the basis of some of the most influential and far-reaching art education programs of the 20th century. Accomplished as a designer, typographer and printmaker, Albers is best remembered for his work as an abstract painter. He favoured a very disciplined approach to composition, and published several books and articles on the theory of form and colour. Albers’ theories about art and colour powerfully influenced a whole generation of American artists including Robert Rauschenberg who claimed: ‘I consider Albers as the most important teacher I’ve ever had’. His own paintings form the foundation of both hard-edge abstraction and Op art. After retiring from Yale, Albers continued to live and work in New Haven until his death in 1976.
