More than a century after the Bauhaus was founded, the school's art—with its emphasis on clean lines and efficient design—still looks fresh and new today. As shown here in dozens of color illustrations, this revolutionary movement encompassed architecture, painting, fashion, and graphic design, and—despite the school's 1933 closure by the Nazis—it made a vital contribution to modernism. Along with profiles of such figures as Paul Klee, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, Josef Albers, and Mies van der Rohe, this book takes a closer look at the school's cutting-edge games, appliances, textiles, theater productions, and book designs.
