Josef Albers - From the series “Homage to the Squares”, 1969. Oil on masonite

Josef Albers was one of the most important teachers and influential personalities at the Bauhaus from its inception in Weimar, Germany (1919) through the last days of the school in Berlin (1933). When he fled Nazi Germany and came to the United States he was already established as a painter despite his talents for the art of assemblage and object design. In his series titled, “Homage to the Square”, he produced an extensive body of variations on a highly focused theme. “Homage to the Square” is a collection of explorations in color and spatial relationships in which Albers limited himself to square formats, solid colors and precise geometry, yet was able to achieve a seemingly endless range of visual effects.

Robert Mapplethorpe - Arnold Schwarzenegger, 1976. Photograph on paper

From the Tate Gallery, London:

The bodybuilder and budding actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger poses in a space rendered theatrical by a curtain that cuts the image at the top into two halves. The curve of the curtain to the left is echoed in Schwarzenegger’s pose – his extended right leg and curved right arm. It shows Mapplethorpe’s interest in the classical tradition with Schwarzenegger’s exceptionally muscular physique reminiscent of Michelangelo’s figures in the Sistine Chapel.
