“An abstract (Josef Albers) painting from the late 30’s on your right - there are three reds but trust me no color is on top 
of another color. He’s always found the color straight from the tube and put it on the white background and if you think you see translucency or transparency it is an illusion. You have something of the effect of Josef’s beloved Piero della Francesca because there’s a discipline there. You have an active form coming in from the left...there’s a grace to it.”

In 1971, Josef Albers estab­lished a not-for-profit orga­ni­za­tion to fur­ther  “the rev­e­la­tion and evo­ca­tion of vision through art.” Today, this orga­ni­za­tion —  The Josef and Anni Albers Foun­da­tion — is devoted to pre­serv­ing and pro­mot­ing  the achieve­ments of both Josef and Anni Albers, and the aes­thetic and phil–  osoph­i­cal prin­ci­ples by which they lived.

#annialbers  It was 1929. Klee, Anni told me, was her "god at the time"; he was also her next-door neighbor in the row of five superb new master's houses in the woods a short walk from the Dessau Bauhaus. Although the Swiss painter was, in her eyes, aloof and unapproachable – "like Saint Christopher carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders"– she admired him tremendously.  -- The Bauhaus Group Six Masters of Modernism
