Interaction of Color
1888 – 1976
Josef Albers was a German-born artist and educator, best known for his iconic square paintings — the Homage to the Square series. These works along with his book, Interaction of Color (1963) are considered invaluable contributions to color theory and formed the basis of modern art education programs of the twentieth century.
He was the first teacher at the progressive and experimental Black Mountain College in 1933 and went on to head the design program at Yale University.
