Anni Albers
German-American, 1899–1994
Follow

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.
