The Prints of Josef Albers: A Catalogue Raisonné 1915–1976
Brenda Danilowitz, with a foreword by Nicholas Fox Weber
Josef Albers was an “addictive maker of prints.” He relished the implicit detachment of printmaking: the way that the medium removed his hand at least one step from the end result. Over the course of his life, Josef Albers created more than 240 individual prints and multi-print portfolios. The catalogue raisonné of Albers's prints documents the artist’s lifelong dedication to the art form, from the early linoleum cuts and lithographs of industrial landscapes, architectural studies, and portraits made in his native Rhineland, to the zinc plate lithographs, screenprints, and inkless embossed abstractions of his later career.
