Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This volume provides a fascinating study of the revolutionary painter and teacher, Josef Albers (1888-1976). Albers began his teaching career in 1923, when Walter Gropius invited him to join the faculty of the Bauhaus in Germany, where he quickly replaced the school s standard course curriculum with his own innovative methods. After moving to the United States, he taught at Black Mountain College in North Carolina and then at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut until he retired in 1954. Overall, Albers s passionate commitment to teaching was matched only by his devotion to his own artistic development. While he is widely perceived as a strong-minded theoretician, he was, in fact, as this volume reveals, against rigid dogma and he encouraged his students to develop lively and original solutions to his many and varied design exercises. On their first day in his classroom, Albers s students were informed that his goal was to educate their eyes and that he was going to teach them how to think and to see, an agenda belied by the somewhat prosaic course names Basic Drawing and Basic Design. Overall, as a thinker, writer (Albers s important volume The Interaction of Color was published in 1963 by Yale) and educator he has directly and indirectly influenced generations of established artists, including Robert Mangold, Robert Rauschenberg, and Donald Judd, among many others. This book provides not only a compelling study of a key figure of 20th century art, but also ponders what constitutes art and how it is made. Bookseller Inventory # BZE9780714849652

Book Description Phaidon, London / New York, 2009. Softcover. Reprinted in paperback, 2009. Blue & BW illus. wraps, matching dust jacket, 287 pp.; Profusely illustrated in bw and color. "Josef Albers (1888-1976) has long been admired for his progressive vision as an artist and designer who blurred distinctions between fine and applied art, but rarely has his influence as a teacher been examined in depth and detail. . [This book] takes the reader through Albers's life in teaching -- from his first years at the pioneering but politically fraught Bauhaus; to his 1933 emigration to the United States, where he and his wife Anni became founding meembers and teacher at the experimental start-up Black Mountain College and again to his 1950 appointment t head up Yale University's newly restructured Department of Design. Throughout his forty years in education, Albers influenced everyone he encountered not, as one former student says, as a 'tour guide of the world of art, but rather as a living embodiment of that world.'" (flap). VG- (Slight wear to bottom edge of wraps and dj, otherwise clean.). Bookseller Inventory # 147149

Book Description Die Autoren führen den Leser durch das Leben Josef Albers als Lehrer - von den frühesten Jahren am Bauhaus, die wegweisend und in politischer Hinsicht nervenaufreibend zugleich waren - über seine Emigration in die USA im Jahre 1933, wo er und seine Frau Anni Gründungsmitglieder und Lehrer an der experimentellen »Black Mountain Akademie« wurden, bis hin zu seiner Berufung als Direktor der neu strukturierten Designabteilung an der »Yale Academy« im Jahre 1950. Der Lehrer Albers war Zeit seines Lebens von einer ganz bestimmten Leidenschaft angetrieben worden: Dem Wunsch, die Augen seiner Studenten für eine andere Wahrnehmung der Kunst und letztendlich auch des Lebens zu öffnen (Text engl.). 29 x 25 cm, 286 S., zahlr. farbige Abb., pb., Sonderausgabe.
