WOMEN'S WORK: TEXTILE ART FROM THE BAUHAUS by Sigrid Wortmann Weltge
Chronicle Books1993, First edition. 208 pp., 9" X 11 1/2"
In this model study, superlatively documented with rare or little-seen photographs of the textiles and their makers, Sigrid Wortmann Weltge captures the heady atmosphere of creative excitement at the Bauhaus. Original archival research and interviews, both with survivors and their students and with leading contemporary designers, detail the workshop's history and its enduring legacy. When the Nazis closed the institution in 1933, its members dispersed to Switzerland, Holland, England, France, Russia, Mexico, and throughout the United States; their ideals and influence live on in marvelous fabrics still being produced today. Fine but for a nick to front right corner dj and small stain affecting top right front of dj as well as inside flap.
