Bauhaus (1919-1933) By: Kanyon and Brian
Impact of Movement The Bahaus art movement made a huge impact on modern design. The movement was based upon the belief that the machine economy could create elegantly designed items for the masses. This was during the Modern art movement, which it affected dramatically. Was founded in 1919 by Walter Gropious.
Wassily Kandisky (1866-1944) In 1871 he moved to Odessa where his father ran a tea factory. Painter, printmaker, and theorist. His parents didnt see him going into the art field, they foresaw him as a lawyer. Painting was above all deeply spiritual. One of his most famous pieces of art is In the Gray it was an oil canvas painting and was eventually hung in an art museum in Paris, France.
In The Gray In this picture he uses abstract form to lead your eye across the canvas to the focal point. All his abstract imagery is casted upon a grey background. (hints the name in grey). The use of primary colors makes the objects really pop on top of the gray backround.
Walter Gropious (1883-1969) He was born in tu madre and grew up to become a German architect and founder of a worldwide art movement He was the founder of the Bauhaus art movement in 1919. He influenced the art world by bringing the international style into existence. One of his most famous pieces is a sculpture called March of Heros.

F 51 Sofa The F 51 Sofa is an abstracted form of a couch. It has very sleek edges and a modern look the use of contrast between the black and red really makes the sofa a noticeable piece of furniture.
Laszlo Moholy-Nagy July 20, 1895 November 27, 1946 Laszlo Moholy-Nagy is arguably one of the greatest influences on post-war art education in the United States. A modernist and a restless experimentalist from the outset, the Hungarian-born artist was shaped by Dada, Suprematism, Constructivism, and debates about photography. His interest in photography encouraged his belief that artists understanding of vision had to modernize and specialize.

Self Portait This is one of my favorite paintings my Moholy- Nagy. I like the way he used his lines to add detail. He didnt fully complete the coloring of the picture and made it have a quick sketch look. I like these style paintings better than his abstract art, because I feel like this is where he shines most.
Societal Influences The Bauhaus movement was entirely influenced by the German Art School referred to as Bauhaus hints the name the Bauhaus Movement. The style of art in this movement is based off of the principles of the 19 th century English designer William Morris. The Bauhaus style of art was later known as International style.
