Designer Anni Albers American, born Germany

Not on view

Albers came to this country with her husband, Josef, in the late 1930s. She began her career as a student at the Bauhaus and became one of the most prominent weavers of the twentieth century. The weaving in Pasture, a relatively late work, is both richly textured and clearly articulated.
