In 1942 Josef Albers embarked on a series of zinc plate lithographs entitled Graphic Tectonics. While he is best known for his color studies, here Albers took an interest in the absence of color in his studies of lines, where he worked to create "maximum effect from minimum means." This series of works was completed while he taught at Black Mountain College and continued his exploration of optical illusions.
