old master . . . .

Anni Albers is respected for being a pioneer of twentieth-century modernism and a leading member of the Bauhaus movement.  She is well known to weavers for the way she reinvented the craft as an art form. However, it is not her weaving that I am interested in today, but her print designs from the 1970's.  These pieces look so contemporary they could have been produced yesterday, which goes to show that good design is timeless.
