    DescriptionJosef Albers (1888-1976) was one of the great abstract artists of the twentieth century, as well as one of its most important teachers, influencing generations of artists with his color theories. Born in Germany and a leading figure at the Bauhaus, he settled permanently in the United States at the end of 1934. The processes and excitement of printmaking fulfilled many of Albers' loftiest dreams. He relished its implicit detachment: the way that the medium removed his hand at last one step from the end result. He appreciated the possibilities of texture available, from his playful use of wood grains, through the crisp straight lines afforded by zinc plate lithography, to the web embossing he used in the 1950s. He also treasured the multitude of color choices available in ink - a range he often said was far greater than was possible with paints.
