Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The way our environment looks, the appearance of everything from housing developments to newspapers, is partly the result of a school of art and design founded in Germany in 1919 and closed down by the Nazis in 1933. This was the Bauhaus, which has also left an indelible mark on art education throughout the world.

Synopsis:

Traces the history of the German school of art, the Bauhaus, and examines the activities of its teachers and students.

About the Author

Frank Whitford was born in 1941 and educated at Wadham College, Oxford, the Courtauld Institute, London and the Freie Universitat, West Berlin. After a career as a journalist and a cartoonist, he taught at University College London, and then in Cambridge, where he is still attached to Wolfson College.
