Woman's Work: Textile Art from the Bauhaus
- Book #11
by Sigrid Weltge
Thames and Hudson, 11.25" x 8.75", 208 pages, 1993
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....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.
"Extremely handsome with brilliant color plates and extensive technical information....An invaluable tool for future scholars."
Women’s Review of Books
"Clearly, the author has set the record straight: Bauhaus weaving stands proudly with the achievements of 20th-century art."
