One of the best-known “firsts” accomplished by German-born educator, designer, and artist Josef Albers was that he was the first living artist with a solo show at both the Museum of Modern Art and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. His reputation as an abstract painter, theorist, and teacher from Bauhaus, Black Mountain College, and Yale University made him one of the 20th century’s most influential visual arts educators as well as a sought-after artist in his own right. A set of ten screen-print variants of a Josef Albers design is up for bid in the Spring International Fine Art Sale, offered by Barridoff Auctions.
Beyond abstract designs are figurative works from well-known artists such as Edouard Manet, Christopher Pugliese, and Léopold Survage. One of the featured “March Finds” is by Survage, featuring a posed woman draped in white cloth. The title, Baigneuse, appears on a verso label along with the number “184.” Other artists with work in the sale include Pablo Picasso, Lynn Mapp Drexler, Wolf Kahn, Henry Calvert, and more.
