An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers tells of the artist who spent his entire life studying color, and what he found revolutionized the way people look at art.
As a child, Josef Albers loved to watch his handyman father paint houses.When Josef grew up and became an artist, he reduced each image to its simplest shapes, breaking it down into blocks of color. He made an incredible discovery: he could alter the entire mood of a painting just by changing the way he combined the colors!
Albers was a student of and professor at Weimar Bauhaus before emigrating to the United States and joining the faculty of Black Mountain College in North Carolina, and then Yale.
