One and One Is Four: The Bauhaus Photocollages of Josef Albers

One and One Is Four: The Bauhaus Photocollages of Josef Albers

By Sarah Hermanson Meister (Editor), Josef Albers  (Artist), Elizabeth Otto (Contributor), Lee Daffner (Contributor)

German-born abstract painter Josef Albers laid the foundations for some of the most important art education programs of the 20th century. In 1936, during his time working at the Black Mountain College in North Carolina, he had his first solo exhibition in New York at J. B. Neumann’s New Art Circle. In 1949, Albers left the college and began his famous Homage to the Square series. He taught at various institutions throughout America, including Yale University, New Haven, where he lectured for eight years. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, organized Albers' traveling exhibition in 1965 and a retrospective of his work was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, in 1971. The artist died in 1976.

Sarah Meister is Curator in the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
