This week in Art Speak, we look at one of the most influential movements of the 20th century. It sought to unite art, design and industry, provide a universal aesthetic, and give good design to everyone: Bauhaus.
Gunta Stolzl | Bauhaus Weaver and Textile Designer I had to pin this one!! One of sections to complete within my project is "Looking at how repeat pattern is used within the art movement historically and culturally" Bauhaus was a classic art movement. I adore the colour of Gunta Stolzl. It's vibrant and cheerful. The pattern isn't to over the top either. I am going for an interesting surface pattern however i do not want it to be to heavy.
Carl Ernst Hinkefuss (1881-1970) was a popular Bauhaus influenced illustrator known for modernist graphic design work that integrated art with commercial values. From 1905 to early 1910, he worked in the advertising and publicity departments of several firms in Berlin and Dessau, and then later in 1910 set out as an independent publicist in Berlin". He ultimately partnered with Wilhelm Deffke (1887-1950) in Wilhemwerk, their commercial design house.
