Albers created the prints in this volume during three periods. First, the years 1915–1917 of his early figurative linoleum cuts and lithographs while he was a schoolteacher in Bottrop are illustrated. Next, the black-and-white complex abstract prints of 1933–1950 are presented, from the closing of the Bauhaus through his years at Black Mountain College. Finally, the period during 1958–1976, from his retirement as chairman of the Department of Design at Yale University up until his death on March 25, 1976, the time during which he created his best-known colored woodcuts, lithographs, drypoints, screen print suites, inkless intaglios, and embossings. Albers's last portfolio of 12 screen prints, Never Before, is reproduced here for the first time, as are eight newly catalogued entries, including the only graphic work he designed during his years at the Bauhaus (No. 239, p. 186). I was glad to see a color photograph of Upward (p. 16), one of Albers's landmark flashed glass compositions with black paint that he created at Bauhaus by sandblasting thin layers of fused opaque and colored glass covered with a stencil, then removing the stencil, adding another color, and baking this entire piece in a kiln to achieve a hard surface of radiant beauty. A comprehensive curatorial essay with lavish annotations on all of Albers's graphic work accompanies the reproductions.
