(Josef Albers: Stained Glass, Drawings, Engravings, Typography, Furniture)
Featuring works that Josef Albers created in the 1920s at the Bauhaus, this handsome catalogue focuses on his stained-glass pieces, both designs for architectural installations and glass works for exhibition—his “glass-pictures.” Albers’s pursuits in other Bauhaus workshops, including printmaking, typography, and furniture design are also considered. Writings by Albers illuminate his thinking process, while essays in English and French by Oliver Barker, Brenda Danilowitz, and Dominique Szymusiak provide historical context and key influences.
