Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The Weaving Workshop was the only domain for women artists at the Bauhaus (the German school of design that operated from 1919 through 1933). The text tells about the women of the workshop and the context of their work and art, the progression of the school and its edicts, the changes wrought by the mechanized loom and mass production, and the legacy of the Bauhaus. The 200 photographs feature textile designs that were so far ahead of their time that many appear contemporary. This is an important book for its detailing of the school, the times, women artists, and the Workshop, considered to be the preeminent design phenomenon of the 20th century. 9x11.5"
