Josef Albers: Mitered Squares

In his series “Mitered Squares” (1976), Josef Albers offers a variation of his iconic “Homage to the Square” motif, adding diagonal lines to give a sense of depth to the composition. Produced in collaboration with the master printmaker Kenneth Tyler, the 12 silkscreens in the portfolio exemplify Albers’s mastery of color. Albers—who taught color theory throughout his career—named each “Mitered Squares” after a pastel shade, such as lemon, butter, lime, cold teal, Miami green, apricot, and fog. With the small edition size of 36, the full portfolio is rare on the art market—and can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA.
