JOSEF ALBERS: GLASS, COLOR AND LIGHT. Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, 1994. Organized in association with Josef Albers Foundation, Orange. Published by Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 152 pp. with 86 ills. (39 col.). 29 x 25 cm. LC 94-229197 ISBN 0892071273 In English.
Surveying a significant but little-known body of work from Albers's Bauhaus period, this catalogue features fine reproductions of the approximately 50 extant wall-hung glass panels created by the celebrated German-American artist (1888-1976) from 1921 to 1932, many of the works consisting of geometric abstractions produced on opaque glass sheets using black paint and sophisticated sandblasting techniques. Two essays analyzing individual pieces and assessing the importance of the glass paintings to the development of Albers's oeuvre are augmented by a statement by the artist and an illustrated summary of his eight architectural projects in glass.
