Founded by Walter Gropius in 1919, the Bauhaus was a German art school that sought to reunite fine art with functional design to create objects both useful and beautiful. Students were trained across disciplines like cabinet making, weaving and painting under the philosophy of ‘Art into Industry’. This innovative approach soon became one of the most influential currents across modern design, art and architecture. Notable members in our collection include Paul Klee
and Wassily Kandinsky
, among others.
