Note:
I-S’K, 1973 is part of Josef Albers’s “Homage to the Square” series, an endeavour that the artist undertook late in his career is a delightful exploration of minimalism and the visual exploration of the chromatic spectrum. Not only an exercise in precision but equally an exploration of the relationship between each and every square in shape and in colour behaviour, via a scientific approach.


Estimate: $3,000—5,000
