Books

NFW has published these five books with Alfred A Knopf. Some have paperback editions published by Yale University Press or Dalkey Archive, as well as French editions published by Librairie Arthème Fayard.

NFW is currently under contract with Knopf for a biography of Piet Mondrian, on which he has been working for five years.

For nearly forty years, NFW has devoted himself to the legacy of both Anni Albers and Josef Albers. He became close to these two great artists when he was at Yale Graduate School, and since then has organized exhibitions of their art and written about both of them. The Foundation he created in a beautiful woodland setting in Connecticut, where there are artists’ residential studios and a writer’s apartment as well as archives and a gallery and offices, and the Albers Museum in Bottrop, Germany, are devoted to the mission of enabling the world to savor Anni and Josef’s universal and timeless art and values. The past, present, and future activities of the Albers Foundation can be discovered at the website albersfoundation.org.

NFW established American Friends of Le Korsa in 2006, through the Albers Foundation and thanks to the generous support of his fellow trustees. This organization not only assists with medical care and education in some of the poorest neighborhoods of Dakar and in isolated regions of Senegal not far from the border of Mali, but recently created Thread, a cultural center with artists’ residencies in the village of Sinthian. A range of projects are shown in depth at the websites aflk.org and Thread-Senegal.org.
