Bauhaus Painting & Sculpture

Painting was a tremendous source of inspiration for all activities at the Bauhaus and included some of the most distinguished painters of this century. Although painting was not part of the curriculum until the later years due to the indulgent perception, association with the rich and difficulty to mass-produce for a large audience.

Masters of Painting included Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky & Lyonel Feininger. Their paintings can be characterized by strong spiritual dimension, with an element of desire to see through the physical to achieve the metaphysical.
