"Abstraction is real, probably more real than nature. " - Josef Albers.
Josef Albers (1888–1976) was a highly influential painter, color theorist and teacher--a monumental figure in international postwar art and aesthetics; his wife and artistic equal, Anni Albers (1899–1994), created important textile artworks as well as spare and abstract paintings and drawings. Together, their artistic roots can be traced to the time they shared at the Bauhaus in Germany in the 1920s and early 1930s. After immigrating to the United States in 1933, the couple traveled regularly to Mexico and South America to study the art, architecture and textile designs of pre-Columbian cultures.
