“[Anni Albers] could’ve done painting later on, but she immersed herself in thread: Anni was a great person for working with limitations,” [Nicholas Fox] Weber said. “She used thread to make abstract art. Her best wall hangings from the Bauhaus and the rest of her weaving life are as great, and very similar to, work by Klee or Mondrian. They’re pure abstractions: It’s only the medium that’s different.”
