Bauhaus Textiles: Women Artists and the Weaving Workshop

Author
S. W. Weltge
Publisher
Thames & Hudson
The preeminence of the Bauhaus in the history of twentieth-century design is undisputed, and most aspects of it have been minutely examined. Yet its Weaving Workshop, whose artists were almost all women, has received much less attention. As the author points out, when talented women arrived at the Bauhaus school, they soon discovered that its founder, Walter Gropius, was not adhering strictly to his ringing declaration of equality "between the beautiful and the strong gender." Textiles, in the hierarchy of art and design, were deemed "women's work." In this model study, superlatively illustrated with period photographs and examples of surviving textiles, Professor Weltge recreates the heady atmosphere of creative excitement at the Bauhaus.
