Print, Palatial, Homage to the Square, Soft Edge – Hard Edge
Throughout Homage to the Square, the series that defined the late career of Josef Albers, the artist demonstrates the ways in which colors influence each other by applying a wide variety of colors to a single composition of squares within squares. In this example, the bright violet hue dulls the brilliance of the red tones, and the purple and red planes seemingly recede and advance into space.
