Preface by Nicholas Fox Weber. Text by Kelly Feeney

This catalogue for a traveling exhibition considers the working drawings and spontaneous studies of Josef Albers, beginning with the landscapes and figure studies he created before enrolling at the Bauhaus, to abstractions inspired by archeological sites in Mexico, to color studies for his famous Homage to the Square paintings. An essay by the curator Kelly Feeney notes important influences and explores the development of Albers’s “seeing.”
