Wonderful graphite and colour pencil study relating to the importance and influence of the Bauhaus style on Modernism in the 20th century. With the idealistic concept of a 'total' work of art across many different media the school lasted 14 years between world wars and was finally dismantled due to lack of state funding. It was seen as a threat to traditional approaches favoured by right-wing politics and although it was tagged as a leftist movement its founders and counters always claimed it to be German. Involved in the ground-breaking fusion were Walter Gropius, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Josef and Anni Albers, Oscar Schlemmer, Gunta Stolzl, Marrianne Brandt andLudwig Mies van der Rohe.
