JOSEF & ANNI ALBERS

This morning, I found few drawings made by Josef Albers. From on to an other, I rediscovered the works of his wife too, Anni Albers. What an amazing couple.

About this blog

PARIS, LA blog is about the magic accidents of life. It’s about artists, writers, photographers, musicians and designers that cross our mind, and our heart for a day, a season, a life!

With a minimum of artifice, spare styling, and openness to improvisation, he allows the innate character and […]
