    It successfully managed to connect fine art and craftsmanship and made that fusion applied through a wide range of architecture, design, painting, sculpture, film, photography, and other visual and performing arts. Gropius, however, existed more as a force of connection and possibility than a creative genius in his own right, a fact he wrestled with throughout his life. She enjoys interviewing artists and reading all about art history, and she is truly passionate about visual arts, especially about photography, design, graphics, multimedia, and street art in all of its forms. His studies of color palettes and color interaction directly influenced the Op Art movement and other color abstraction base movements. On the contrary of once cherished ornamentation of buildings as one of the main goals of visual arts, Bauhaus movement was determined to clear the form, while still keeping the artistic side to it, only far more simple than it used to be. MacCarthy sees her task as putting living flesh on the biscuity bones of Herr Meister Gropius, too often seen as the archetypal humourless Teuton.

Architects, who worked locally, had strong ties to the European architectural developments of the day. Itten's works exploring the use and composition of color resemble the square op art canvases of artists such as Josef AlbersMax Bill and Bridget Rileyand the expressionist works of Wassily Kandinsky.

In Tel Aviv, Bauhaus architecture gained a foothold, as there was no real entrenched architectural style.

Bayer's advertising work also boomed, particularly with the Container Corporation of America also established by Paepcke. Inhis Light-Space-Modulator, which was designed inwas exhibited for the first time in Paris. Herbert Bayer created a typographical identity for the Bauhaus.

He moved to Weimer while going through a divorce. Gropius argued for such building techniques as prefabrication of parts and assembly on the site. His studies of color palettes and color interaction directly influenced the Op Art movement and other color abstraction base movements.

Their wartime marriage, dependent on furloughs, was complicated by her affair with the German author Franz Werfeland they were divorced in Only once this preliminary course was complete could Bauhaus students choose their department.

He emphasized housing and city planningthe usefulness of sociology, and the necessity of using teams of specialists.

Or, should we say — multi-functionality. By the time Gropius died inhis vision of urbanism was outmoded, roundly rejected by a new generation of postmodernists and traditionalists. But by the mids this vision had given way to a stress on uniting art and industrial design, and it was this which underpinned the Bauhaus's most original and important achievements.

Some suspect that an affair between Bayer and Ise Gropius sped up this departure, as well as leading to Bayer's wife Irene leaving him they would divorce in and taking their daughter Julia with her.

Prompted by journeys and by various interests of her own, she wrote a large number of essays that she sold to publishing companies. Created product, whether it is an architectural project, craft work, design, or an art piece, should be functional.
