Bauhaus Silkscreen 'Homage to the Square' by Joseph Albers

Josef Albers (1888 – 1976)was a German-America artist and educator whose work, both in Europe and in the United States, formed the basis of modern art education programs of the twentieth century.
Albers enrolled as a student in the preliminary course of Johannes Itten at the Weimar Bauhaus in 1920.
In 1925, Albers was promoted to professor, the year the Bauhaus moved to Dessau.
With the closure of the Bauhaus under Nazi pressure in 1933 the artists dispersed, most leaving the country. Albers emigrated to the United States.
Accomplished as a designer, photographer, typographer and poet,  Albers is best remembered for his work as an abstract painter and theorist He favored a very disciplined approach to composition. Most famous of all are the hundreds of paintings and prints that make up the series, Homage to the Square. In this rigorous series, begun in 1949, Albers explored chromatic interactions with nested squares.

This silkscreen print can be dated in the 1970s, it is not marked.
It is in very good condition and will be delivered with the original aluminum frame and a new passe-partout.
