Anni Albers is perhaps the best-known textile artist of the twentieth century. She worked primarily in textiles, but later in life also worked 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 “pictorial” images, and mass-produced yard material. Her weavings are often constructed of both traditional and industrial materials, for example sometimes combining jute, paper, and cellophane.
