Design and form : the basic course at the Bauhaus by Johannes Itten( Book )

Here for the first time is a complete description of one of the landmarks of modern art education - the famous Basic Course at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany - written by the teacher who organized it at the invitation of Walter Gropius in 1919. The Bauhaus and its leaders, among them Gropius, Feininger, Itten, Muche, Schlemmer, Klee, Kandinsky and Moholy-Nagy, have had a determining influence on the development of art and teaching in the United States. -- The Basic Course was used as a trial period to judge the students with varying educational backgrounds who arrived from all parts of the country. -- Itten describes his describes his methods for encouraging the student to highly individual and creative uses of light and dark, material and texture, rhythm, expressive and subjective form, and color. Each of the 197 plates has a detailed description which will help the reader to understand the purpose of art educations. -- This is still an excellent and practical book for art educators today, as well as providing some of the best historical information on the Bauhaus

The Bauhaus in Calcutta : an encounter of cosmopolitan avant-gardes by Bauhaus( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bauhaus exhibition in Calcutta in 1922 was a unique experience on the international art scene--a meeting of artistic and intellectual affinities. On a search for renewal after World War I, Western modernism encountered its Indian counterpart, which had emancipated itself from colonial constraints. At the Bauhaus's first international show, works by Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Johannes Itten, and other Bauhaus artists were presented alongside those of modern Indian artists such as Nandalal Bose, Sunayani Devi, and Abanindranath and Gaganendranath Tagore. This publication gives an account how this unusual encounter came about and presents the exhibition as an exemplary case of art history that dealt with shared visions rather than transmissions from the West to the East
