Biography

Albers had been a teacher at the Bauhaus but in 1933, following its closure, he moved to the USA after accepting an offer to lead the art programme at the new Black Mountain College. In the forties, Albers experimented with printmaking and used a variety of surfaces including wood. These prints emphasise the organic nature of the wood’s natural grain, which he incorporated into the composition and contrasted with his own geometric line. With his wife, the artist Anni Albers, he made the first of fourteen visits to Mexico in 1935; they were both greatly influenced by Mexican art and architecture. Tlaloc is the Aztec god of rain, lightening and thunder.
