the Bauhaus, 90 years of Inspiration

What artists (graphic, music, or architect) aren't inspired by the Bauhaus. Walter Gropius founded Staatliches Bauhaus Weimar in 1919 in a bankrupt Germany and the younger generation was eager to make positive changes. (via smashing mag)

Bauhaus selected some of the best talent from each trade to become Master Instructors. Not only did they teach the student, they motivated and inspired.

L-R: Josef Albers, Hinnerk Scheper, Georg Muche, László Moholy-Nagy, Herbert Bayer, Joost Schmidt, Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Vassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Gunta Stölzl (whom I believe is the only rockin lady on the staff... hot hot!) and Oskar Schlemmer

now for some eye candy...
