Astonishing because if anyone changed 20th century perceptions about textiles being considered as much fine art as craft it was her – a lingering legacy perhaps of an entrenched fine art snobbery towards a technique perceived as way down the artistic hierarchy – and woman's work. Albers had encountered such prejudices herself when she first went to the Bauhaus, taking up textiles, seen as a woman's skill, because she was barred from her first choices, painting and stained glass. Yet, with her love of ancient weaving traditions, her understanding of the contemporary mode and her use of new materials, she went on to revolutionise attitudes, with textiles that were, quite simply, great art.
