Resources for Collectors
Most of the Foundation's collection of work by Josef and Anni Albers is inviolable and will never be sold. However, the Foundation does sell a small, selected group of paintings and prints through its authorized representatives. The Foundation has appointed David Zwirner Gallery of New York and London as its worldwide, exclusive representative.
If you wish to acquire original prints by either Josef or Anni Albers, please contact the Alan Cristea Gallery in London. The Alan Cristea Gallery controls worldwide representation for this body of work.
Additional work by both Josef and Anni Albers not coming directly from the Foundation is also available in other galleries and at auctions.
Catalogue Raisonné Review
The catalogue raisonné review committee of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation meets four times each year at the Foundation's offices in Bethany, Connecticut. Please contact the Foundation for more information about these meetings.
The review committee will consider all works believed to have been made by Josef or Anni Albers. Objects sent for consideration must be submitted by the owner, or by a person duly authorized by the owner. Following the committee meetings, the Foundation will notify the owner whether or not the work submitted will be included in the catalogue raisonné, or whether additional study may be needed.
Owners of paintings by Josef Albers, and those who wish to buy or sell such works, are particularly urged to exercise the utmost care to make certain that the objects in question were in fact made by the artist. In recent years, a number of Homage to the Square forgeries have appeared on the market.
