Anni Albers was one of the many famous students of the Bauhaus art school that operated in Weimar, Germany from 1919 to 1933. In 1925, Anni married Josef Albers, and together they would become one of the most prominent couples at the Bauhaus. During their time at the institution, the faculty also included Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.

It was at the Bauhaus that Albers began her exploration of textiles, especially their light reflection, durability and sound absorption. After moving on the Black Mountain College in North Carolina, Albers textile work garnered considerable attention in the United States, culminating in a show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1949.

Albers' work continued to receive attention and acclaim throughout the rest of her life.
