The Pratt Institute's 50 Most Groundbreaking Designs

Homage to the Square: With Rays

Artist: Josef Albers

Year: 1959

Medium: Painting

Albers felt that color perception is a subjective experience, and used geometric shapes to create over a thousand works that highlight the different projections and interactions of color. This painting shows yellow squares of difference sizes, perhaps layered on top of each other, bordering a smaller gray square.
