These are some of my favorite Albers paintings. They are a revelation. Normally when I think of Albers' work, I picture the square inside a square.
Though the overall compositions of these paintings are all pretty similar, they each have so much personality. I think it's because the two smallest rectangles look like eyes, or windows in a house.
I'm thinking about doing a series of quilts based on these paintings. They would make beautiful crib quilts. Sometimes it's nice to work on something very formal and traditional as a counterbalance to the personal/creepy/rabbit quilts.
