One of the most influential textile artists of the 20th century, Anni Albers began her career at the Bauhaus, where – prevented from studying other disciplines as a woman – she took up weaving under the tutelage of Gunta Stölzl. This kickstarted a lifelong passion for the tactile and aesthetic possibilities of textiles and led her to the US, where she became the first textile artist to be honoured with a show at the Museum of Modern Art – and the most famous weaver of the modern age.
