Josef Albers (1888-1976) color screenprint on Mohawk Superfine Bristol wove paper from the artist's Formulation: Articulation, Folio II / Folder 33, published in 1972. 
Printed by Sirocco Screenprinters; Publisher: Ives-Sillman, Inc., New Haven., Harry N. Abrams, New York. 
Printed lower right, verso.: JOSEF ALBERS / FORMULATION : ARTICULATION The geometric composition of superimposed squares in shades of green on blue references the iconic Homage to the Square series Albers worked on for 25 years. Albers and two of his former students, Norman Ives and Sewell Sillman, created the prints for Formulation: Articulation over a two year period before their publication in an edition of 1000 in 1972. Very good condition, mounted on an archival black book/window mat with a green inner border. Sheet size: 15 in H x 20 in W Image size: 11.75 in H x 11.75 in W Mat size: 22.25 in H x 22.25 in W (outer dimensions) Josef Albers was an artist and teacher at The Bauhaus (1923-1933), Black Mountain College (1933-1949), and Yale University's School of Art (1950-1958). He published a two-volume set of silkscreen plates called Formulation: Articulation in 1972 at 88 years of age; each image was a reformulation of an earlier work. As the preface to the collection states: “The conceptual relationships between color and form inherent in each particular work have been restudied and developed for the medium of silk screening.”
