Product description

In 1963, in the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles, Albers was attracted by the printing process and the creative potential offered by lithography. Over the next twenty years she created a series of prints that translated her innovative textile work into this new medium, introducing Mexican colors into her work and freeing herself from the strict limitations of her Bauhaus production. She explored new lithography techniques, offset printing, photographic processes, and silkscreen, creating a body of work that is published here in its entirety for the first time. Anni Albers worked primarily in textiles and, late in life, as a printmaker. She produced numerous designs in ink washes for her textiles, and occasionally experimented with jewelry. Her woven works include many wall hangings, curtains and bedspreads, mounted pictorialA" images, and mass-produced yard material. Her weavings are often constructed of both traditional and industrial materials, not hesitating to combine jute, paper, and cellophane, for instance, to startlingly sublime effect.
