Summary "Josef Albers: To Open Eyes takes the reader through Albers's life in teaching - from his first years at the pioneering but politically fraught Bauhaus; to his 1933 emigration to the United States, where he and his wife Anni became founding members and teachers at the experimental start-up Black Mountain College; and again to his 1950 appointment to head up Yale University's newly restructured Department of Design. Throughout his forty years in education, Albers influenced everyone he encountered not, as one former student says, as a "tour guide of the world of art, but rather as a living embodiment of that world.""--BOOK JACKET.
