Art Focus Lecture: The Bauhaus School

Founded in Germany after the First World War by internationally renowned architect Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus School became a unique center for modern design and architectural ideas. Teachers included Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, and Mies van der Rohe. We will explore the innovative modern designs of the Bauhaus artists and designers, their utopian project in teaching and learning, and their unprecedented impact on art and design throughout the western world.

Brigid Barton is a professor emerita in Art History at Santa Clara University where her specialty was European Modernism. She continues to lecture for Stanford Continuing Studies, Santa Clara University’s Olli Program, and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
