In 1922 she entered the Bauhaus at Weimar to study weaving. She completed her course at the Bauhaus at Dessau in 1929 and taught there, in the fabrics’ section, from 1930 to 1933 when, the Bauhaus having been closed by the Nazi regime, she emigrated to the United States with her husband, Josef Albers, and accepted an assistant professorship at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. In 1937 she became an American citizen.

Anni Albers has been widely recognized, especially in the field of graphics. Her work has been exhibited in virtually every major museum in this field, and she received prizes, medals and honorary degrees beyond count.

About Anni Albers

Printmaker and textile artist Anni Albers is widely recognized both for her geometric patterned compositions and deep involvement with the Bauhaus and Black Mountain College, teaching at the latter between 1933 and 1949. Albers arrived at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany in 1922, but was limited in the coursework she could pursue as certain disciplines were not taught to women. Although she began weaving almost by default, Albers became among the 20th century’s defining “pictorial” textile artists. At the Bauhaus she studied under painters Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, focusing on relationships between colors and the expressive potential of simple forms. She then married leading Bauhaus figure and renowned color theorist Josef Albers in 1925. In addition to frequent conversations with her many friends and colleagues, Albers drew inspiration from the pre-Columbian art she viewed during travels throughout Mexico and the Americas.
