Just In: Josef Albers

October 22, 2018

Josef Albers became fascinated with the architectural silhouettes of the Mesoamerican flat-top pyramids that he observed during his numerous trips to Mexico. This experience is said to have had a lasting impression on Albers’ iconic works, and especially his Homage to the Square series, whose recurring square within a square composition could be seen as a distillation of the shape of the stepped pyramid when viewed from above. LAMA is pleased to be offering this painting in the November 18, 2018 Auction of the Collection of Gerard L. Cafesjian.
