An introduction to shapes through the acclaimed art of Josef Albers
The influential art of Josef Albers is used to teach shapes in this stylish read-aloud board book, which takes children through Albers' range of geometrics, one artwork per page, beginning with squares and returning to them as a familiar refrain throughout. The variance of color, scale, and quantity adds to the richness of the visual arc, and the accompanying text provides a humorous and engaging commentary.
Created for ages 1-3 years
"Albers ideas about colour were complicated but his paintings were simple. This terrific book gets straight to the point. The most appealing aspect of what Albers had to say is all here: art is about pleasure and looking and what colour and rhythm does. Buy this for a child but also give it to your friend who says, 'I don't get modern art'."—Bob and Roberta Smith R.A. [aka Patrick Brill], RA (Royal Academy of Arts) Magazine
