Description

Josef Albers’ precice geometrical etching To Monte Aban is easy to measure and code for a simple program. Here it is mirrored, skewed and tinted to enhance its sense of solid form. Inset is a photograph of the Ball Court at the Mayan site at Monte Alban in Mexico. Albers taught at the Bauhaus and like many others fled to America before WWII. He spent some years teaching in Mexico. This work is a tribute to the genius of Josef Albers as an artist and designer.
