Bauhaus Textiles: Women Artists and the Weaving Workshop (Paperback)
by Sigrid Weltge-Wortmann, Sigrid Weltge
208 pages - 1998/04
Publisher: Thames & Hudson; New Ed edition
No matter what your interest in textiles, the fact that you were a woman entering into the Bauhaus school of art in the 20's meant you were shuffled off to the the textile area.
I am only about half way through reading the book that Santa Elf MG got me for Christmas. It is taking me awhile to finish since I keep getting side tracked looking at the colour plates.
I am frankly really impressed with the frankness of the Author setting the record straight that even though there was a claim of equality at Bauhaus, obviously all these years my reading have been wrong.
The book is really giving me a new perspective on Eileen Gray's work and the obvious fight she must have encountered to study lacquer.
Thank you so much MG, it is an awesome gift and I will cherish it always. :)
