Josef Albers and Wassily Kandinsky : friends in exile, a decade of correspondence, 1929-1939
Wassily Kandinsky and Josef Albers were colleagues at the Bauhaus. After it was shuttered by the Nazis, they shared a destiny as emigres - Kandinsky and his wife Nina in Paris, Albers and his wife, the weaver & teacher Anni Albers, at Black Mountain College in the U.S. Their correspondence, covering the period from 1929 to 1940, provides a unique perspective on this tumultuous period in history and in art.Despite the increasingly alarming political situation that serves as the backdrop for their letters, the tone of these exchanges - born of a warm and serious friendship - is surprisingly optimistic. Foreword and introduction in English; correspondence in German.
