Editorial Reviews

Review

"The school's creative clashes were a reflection of how much their participants had at stake, both aesthetically and politically. All of them lived somewhere between the world as they saw it and the world as they wished it could be. Their yearning, never fulfilled, haunts you long after you leave the show." --The New York Times, November 9, 2009 (Nicolai Ouroussoff)

The essays are probing and extremely well-written.

No picture of the seat taken from above or a close-up of the ingenious way Stolzl's hand-woven gobelin was laced into Breuer's hand-painted carved wood frame.

I would highly recommend this to any lover of art.

Format: Hardcover
The Bauhaus has always been familiar and, in some ways, "known" by architects and architectural educators. We inherit its legacy, with only cursory knowledge of the social and political context that allowed its rise, and ultimately denied its continuation. And yet, this book, which accompanies the show currently on view at the Museum of Modern Art, makes it clear that architects too frequently take only the gleanings of this school and movement--which comes to be known as a "style." Curators Leah Dickerman and Barry Bergdoll craft a brilliant historical narrative of the school and its influence. The essays are probing and extremely well-written. For those of us who pledge allegiance to the stunning textiles, typography, color studies, paintings, glass, architecture, and furniture (all of which are beautifully represented in the book), this is a welcome "rounding out" of our education.

As a child of an architect who ADORED Frank Lloyd Wright and the art deco/bauhaus/midcentury modern styles, and has visited the Bauhaus Museum in Berlin and was lucky enough to live in NYC and saw the exhibit, I knew the moment I saw this I wanted to have it for my home. The pieces from the exhibit are presented in a coherent manner, it shows a varying range of in the style along with its evolution and historical context, and dispays all about the era of this design style that I love... this one is out on display as art in its own right and to show my love of all that is in the book.

Beautiful book. Excellent quality prints of culture-shifting and inspiring works of art.
The large-scale size is great for an artist who wants a good view of the works, for a student studying the Bauhaus art history, or for a art-lover who wants a beautiful coffee table book.
I personally used several of the images in a book cover design class I took while at Parsons for a project about the Bauhaus. The scans I made of the art printed in this book were perfect and totally made the project.
Would make a great personal purchase, as well as a gift. I would highly recommend this to any lover of art.
