Josef Albers (Homage to the Square)

Homage to the Square (30" x 30". 1957)
Despite owning several books about Josef Albers, I have no idea how many variations of 'Homage to the Squares' he painted / printed (wikipedia says 100s), but it's still exciting when I find ones that I haven't seen before. The first is from a Sotheby's 'Contemporary Art' sale catalogue from 1996. The estimated price was £35,000 - £45,000. The second is from an art book I found in the library.
