The groundbreaking geometric abstract works by Josef Albers, Homage to the Square – a series of paintings consisting of four superimposed squares of oil paint, based on Alber’s systematic use of color – remain one of the most famous painting series in the art world. Albers created hundreds of variations on classical composition, an exploration of art, form and perception that now comes with the release of a sequel collection of customizable t-shirts under the VESTIGE x Albers collection Nickname.
