(cover) Josef Albers: Glass, Color, and Light is the first monograph devoted to Albers's work in glass. Accompanying the color reproductions of every extant glass picture is full documentation by Brenda Danilowitz of the Josef Albers Foundation. This volume also illustrates and provides information on Albers's architectural commissions in glass and those works that were lost or destroyed after the artist fled Nazi Germany. Essays by Nicholas Fox Weber, Executive Director of the Josef Albers Foundation, and Fred Licht, Curator of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, illuminate the many themes suggested by this extraordinary group of works, while a chronology of Albers's life and professional career places the glass works in the context of his entire oeuvre. A statement by the artist, an exhibition history, and a select bibliography make this the first comprehensive source on the subject.
