Anni Albers
Anni Albers paintings and prints are at Alan Cristea Gallery in London, these are maze like patterns and eye popping geometric constallations that show she was a true original at the Bauhaus. There are a number of series on show across a long career in Europe and United States, helping to set up, with her husband the painter Josef Albers, after World War II, the Black Mountain College, that 'powerhaus' of avant-garde thought in art, music and performance that influenced the next generation of creatives emerging in the 1950's and 1960's.
