After the Bauhaus was shut down under the Nazis, many of its teachers came to the United States, where they had an enormous influence on American modernism. One such modernist was Richard Filipowski, a student at Chicago's Institute of Design (formerly the New Bauhaus), who became a protégé of founder László Moholy-Nagy. "Filip" was the only student Moholy-Nagy called upon to join the faculty, and he taught alongside Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. This monograph at last illuminates Filipowski's substantial contribution to modernism, revealing a singularly lush abstract visual language in his painting, sculpture, and furniture and jewelry design, much of which had been kept in private collections.
