Book Description

30 Jun 2006 Taschen Basic Art Series
Functional beauty Founded in Welmar in 1919, the Bauhaus school developed a revolutionary approach that fused fine art with craftsmanship and engineering in everything from architecture to furniture, typography, and even theater. Originally headed by Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus counted among its members artists and architects such as Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Wassily Kandinsky, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and Marcel Breuer. In 1930 Ludwig Mies van der Rohe took over as the leader, but soon after, in 1933, the Nazi government shut down the school. During its fourteen years of existence, Bauhaus managed to change the faces of art, architecture, and industrial design forever and is still hugely influential today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fan of the Series. 22 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
The Taschen basic art series are bargain books. The quality of the images and text are amazing value for the price. This particular book provides a great insight into the the Bauhaus movement.

For those wishing for a more indepth look into the movements influence on the modern world other reads are more suitable. This book however is a cheap book perfect for developing an understanding of Bauhaus.

A basic book, that gives you the good understanding of a very interesting school and thinking of design. But seen better books about the bauhaus school - was a bit disappointed, since it doesn't add much new, if already knows the basic....

5.0 out of 5 stars Taschen rocks, 13 Mar 2012
By brainleek007 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love Taschen's approach to publishing. They make really great value but high quality books with accessible writing. What more could you want?!

The Bauhaus book is an overview of the movement which examines the key practitioners that helped define it. All the included images are of very high quality and the writing is engaging and definitely not overly flowery and as obtuse as some art writing.

A great introduction to the movement at a giveaway price!
