Study for Homage to the Square

Josef Albers

This 32-inch Homage to the Square, in quiet tones of grey, was sold by A/P-M to a private American collection in 2016. It was one of the first Josef Albers paintings to be shown by David Zwirner following their representation of The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation which began that year, and was prominently exhibited at Art Basel where we acquired it on the opening day of the fair.
