"A spectacular and unprecedented visual biography of the leading pioneers and protagonists of modern art and design
Josef – painter, designer, and teacher – and Anni Albers – textile artist and printmaker – are among the twentieth century's most important abstract artists, and this is the first monograph to celebrate the rich creative output and beguiling relationship of these two masters in one elegant volume. It presents their life and work as never before, from their formative years at the Bauhaus in Germany to their remarkable influence at Black Mountain College in the United States through their intensely productive period in Connecticut."
Nicholas Fox Weber is the director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. He has written fifteen books, including biographies of Balthus, Le Corbusier, and Freud. Fox Weber's writing has appeared in numerous exhibition catalogs as well as the New Yorker, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, and Vogue, among other publications.
