Josef Albers Window – Intallation Underway

Visitors to the Grassi Museum Leipzig can currently experience the installation of the re-created Josef Albers window next to the main staircase.

One of the largest examples of Bauhaus stained glass work, the Josef Albers window was destroyed during allied bombings in 1945. The re-creation is being funded by a grant from the Ostdeutschen Sparkassenstiftung and the Sparkasse Leipzig, with the work being undertaken by the Paderborn stained glass specialists Peters.

The replacement of the existing windows with the specially finished stained glass is due to be finished later in the summer with the official unveiling taking place in December.

(Note: Although during the installation of the Josef Albers Window one of the other part of the main staircase is closed, access to all areas of the museum remains open!)
