A much-needed publication celebrating the endless creativity of Anni Albers, one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Anni Albers (1899-1994) was a textile designer, weaver, writer and printmaker, who was among the leading pioneers of twentieth-century modernism. Throughout her fruitful career she inspired a reconsideration of fabrics, both in their functional roles and as wall hangings, truly establishing thread and weaving as a valid medium for art.
In her later years, Albers took up print-making, translating many of her persistent themes and ideas into two-dimensional form. But while Albers has been extremely influential for younger generations of artists and designers, her contribution to modernist art history has, until now, been rather overlooked. This publication presents Albers’s most important works in a new light, to fully explore and redefine her contribution to twentieth-century art and design, and highlight her significance as an artist in her own right, rather than alongside her husband Josef.

Illuminating Albers’s technical skill, her material awareness and acute understanding of art and design, this much-needed publication is a celebration of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, and her endless creativity.
