Reviews

"[A] compelling argument that Albers is a major artist whose time has come . . . The volume itself is beautifully designed and printed. The essays and, especially, the images of weavings, show Albers as a masterful technician, as well as an artist who could turn her designs into rich and tactile works."--Adrian Higgins, Washington Post
"Obviously timely, Anni Albers not only is but feels groundbreaking."--Lynne Cooke, Artforum
"This catalog successfully shows Anni Albers's role in the development of 20th-century modernism . . . Thoroughly researched and with high quality images that do justice to the color and dimensionality of Albers's weavings."--Nancy J. Mactague, Library Journal
"A long-overdue reassessment of one of the leading pioneers of 20th-century modernism . . . Here, her most important works are examined to fully explore and redefine her significance to 20th-century art."--Publishers Weekly (Holiday Gift Guide)
"Filled with stunning images . . . A fascinating glimpse into history, a thought-provoking narrative of the artist once dubbed a 'reluctant weaver' who became a fabric virtuoso."--Alia Jeraj, American Craft
"Here [Anni Albers] finally gets the solo spotlight on her mesmerizing, modernist experiments in weaving, featuring new materials, intricate pattern, and masterful color."--Curbed (holiday gift book selection)
