Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

This creative biography explores how Albers, perhaps best known for his paintings of squares in different color combinations, "saw art in the simplest things." Albers is pictured rummaging for scrap materials in a dump, which he turns into "collages that shined like jewels." As a teacher, Albers told his students, "Watch what's going on... and capture the accident." After visiting Mexico-Albers is shown climbing an abstract temple-like structure of colorful rectangles-he reflects on the effects of combining different colors: "Colors came to life like actors on a stage!" An accessible and lively introduction to this artist and to color theory. Ages 6-9. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
