Discovery and Invention: The Early Graphic Works of Josef Albers considers Albers's early development as an artist, beginning with the pre-Bauhaus years when he worked as an elementary-school teacher in his native Bottrop in western Germany, while sketching the landscape and studying courses in art by night. Focusing on his prints and other works on paper, the exhibition reveals not only the unappreciated naturalistic origins of his art, but also his ongoing interest in producing organic, surrealistic forms alongside the geometric abstraction for which he is best known.
