Small-Great Objects presents a remarkable look into the art-collecting practices of two of modern artÕs most widely influential figures, Anni (1899Ð1994) and Josef (1888Ð1976) Albers. Their impressive collection of over 1,400 objects from Latin America, namely Mexico and Peru, represents a conscious endeavor that goes well beyond that of a casual hobby, displaying a deep appreciation for the art, textiles, and overall ingenuity of the ancient American world. This insightful book draws on primary-source materials such as the coupleÕs letters, personal papers, and archival photographsÑmany never before publishedÑand demonstrates their conviction that these Prehispanic objects displayed a formal sophistication and bold abstraction that defy the prevalent conception of the works as Òprimitive.Ó Moreover, it shows how the Alberses spread their appreciation of the ancient world to others, through their teachings, their writings, and their own art practices.
