Anni Albers

Johan & Levi
Anni Albers (Berlin 1899–Orange, CT, 1994) was one of the most influential textile and graphic artists of the 20th century. She trained in the weaving workshop of Walter Gropius’ innovative Bauhaus school, and in 1933 moved with her husband Josef Albers to the United States. There she taught at Black Mountain College until 1949, the year MoMA gave her a solo exhibition – the first devoted to a woman designer. The following year the couple moved to New Haven, Connecticut, where Anni continued to weave and to write. In 1959 the collection of her essays, On Designing, was published, followed in 1965 by her most important and groundbreaking text about textile art, On Weaving.After Josef’s death in 1976, Anni continued to focus on textile design and graphic art, untiringly striving to create new expressive languages until the day she died, in 1994.
