Josef Albers is one of my great favorites. Best known for his abstract paintings, homages to the square and his studies in colour, he was also a well known and influential theorist. Colour theory and perception are delightfully interesting to me. I could stare at his work for hours, daggy as that may be. Here’s just a taste of some of his fantastic works. Definitely some quilt inspiration too, don’t you think?
