Josef Albers - designer, photographer, typographer, printmaker and poet.

With the closure of the Bauhaus in 1933, Josef Albers moved to the United States where he commenced teaching in a painting program at Black Mountain College, North Carolina. During this time he produced many woodcuts and leaf studies.

In 1950, Albers moved to take up the post of Head of Yale University's Department of Design in 1950 where he continued until his retirement as a teacher in 1958.  In 1963, Albers published The Interaction of Colour, in which he forwarded his theory that colours were characterised by internal and deceptive principles.
Josef Albers and "Homage to the Square"

Josef Albers (1888-1976) was an artist and educator whose works had a signficant impact on art education in the 20th century. Albers began as a student in the Weimar Bauhaus in 1920 and was offered a teaching post in a preliminary course in the Department of Design by 1922.  In 1925, he was promoted to professor in the school.  His work at the time involved primarily furniture and household object design and working with glass. 
"I have also come to the conclusion that the square is a human invention, which makes it sympathetic to me. Because you don't see it in nature. As we do not see squares in nature, I thought that it is man-made. But I have corrected myself. Because squares exist in salt crystals, our daily salt. We know this because we can see it in the microscope".
— Josef Albers, quoted in interview about "Homage to a Square" series
