In the early 1920s, Paul Klee and Josef Albers met in Weimar, Germany, where they would become co-directors of the Bauhaus glass workshop. This exhibition of paintings and works on paper explores a rarely acknowledged dialogue between the artists that began early in Albers's career and continued well after Klee's death in 1940.
