Josef Albers in Mexico

$49.95
Product info

After his first visit in the winter of 1935, Bauhaus artist Josef Albers dubbed Mexico “the promised land of abstract art.” He would return over twelve times in the following thirty years to tour the country’s pre-Columbian monuments, pyramids and shrines, drawing endless influence and taking hundreds of black and white photographs. Inspired by the Guggenheim exhibit of the same name, Josef Albers in Mexico explores the influence that this ancient Mesoamerican architecture had on Albers’ own work, displaying his photo collages of these historic sites alongside vivid color reproductions of his simple, geometric paintings and works on paper. Two scholarly essays further shed light on the link between these seemingly contrasting styles, while an illustrated map of Mexico highlights his most-frequented destinations. A fascinating look at this little-known period in the influential artist’s practice, this book is a must-have for any creative.
