Summary "Architects, sculptors, painters, we all must return to the crafts!" declared architect Walter Gropius in his Bauhaus manifesto. Founded in 1919 as an art school in Weimar, the Bauhaus established itself as a major influence on twentieth-century art and design. Uncovering the sources of inspiration that brought the Bauhaus into existence, from medieval cathedrals of Europe and Hokusai prints to William Morris and Arts and Crafts, 'The Spirit of the Bauhaus' explores workshops and courses in detail, illustrating the extraordinary wealth of experimentation in every medium: ceramics, wood and metalwork, textiles, glass--painting, sculpture, mural, printing and binding, theater, architecture, and photography.
