From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Joseph Albers was born in a family of artisans in 1888. He was born into a family of artisans. His family were very meticulous crafters and took pride in there complicated crafting. As a young man he was inspired by the art works of Cezanne, Matisse, and Cubism. He went to art school at Königliche Kunstschule in Berlin from 1913-1915. He was married to weaver Anni Fleischmann in 1915.

From 1915-1920 he was a art student in Berlin and was known for his creative glass sculptors in which he got the glass from the city dump. In 1923 he started to teach people how to design furniture. He did this for about ten years and then in 1933 he and his family were forced to move to America because of the Nazi pressure on his teaching. In America Albers became a “prolific artist”, known for his paintings "Homage’s to Squares." This series of painting were all perfect squares. The squares were over-lapping and were multi-colored. He chose squares for their man-made quality because squares are never made in nature. If they are colored they also made an optical illusion that “confuses” the watcher. From 1950-1958 he was the Chairmen of the Department of Design at Yale university. Joseph Albers died in 1976 at age 88, very old for the time.

150.131.72.51 added the word "fart" (gasp) :-) - I removed to clear up any confusion that Josef's first name was such after the Bauhaus was shut down.
