Anni Albers was active as an artist, craftswoman, graphic artist, designer, writer and teacher and had an eminent influence on the young generation of artists in the USA right into the 1980s. Through her studies at the Bauhaus from 1922 to 1930 and later as a teacher, she succeeded in combining the craft of weaving with old cultural techniques and modern forms of abstraction and establishing this as an art form. Her work is characterized by the multiplication of geometric forms, the serialization of abstract structures and, in a manner akin to music, a polyphonic image structure. Between 1934 and 1956, she traveled repeatedly to South America to study pre-Columbian art and culture. Albers’ DO V titled screen print shows a serial repetition of blue and beige triangles and squares of different sizes that combine to form a diamond shape.
