Artstor has partnered with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation to share 2,100 images of works by Josef and Anni Albers, and photographs taken by Josef Albers. The collection includes more than 300 paintings and studies by Josef Albers, particularly his famous Homage to the Square series, as well nearly 900 drawings, prints, and other works on paper. There are also 350 examples of drawings, prints, and textiles by Anni Albers. In addition, the Foundation has selected 550 personal photographs and photo collages relating to both artists, and their families and friends, which include such well-known 20th-century artists as Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Diego Rivera. Of note are the travel photographs taken during the couple’s journeys to Mexico and Latin America between 1934 and 1967, which deeply influenced their respective work and inspired them to collect Pre-Columbian art and textiles. Together, these materials represent a substantial body of works by Josef and Anni Albers, as well as archival documentation of the personal relationships and experiences that influenced their artistic legacy.
