  • BAUHAUS PRINT PORTFOLIOS AT NATIONAL GALLERY OF IRELAND

    The centenary of the Bauhaus is being marked at the National Gallery of Ireland with a display of print portfolios. The set of four Bauhaus portfolios, displaying a diverse range of print techniques, is on loan from Germany‚Äôs Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.  Dating from the early 1920’s they were produced to promote the work of the Bauhaus internationally and benefit the school financially. Credited as the birthplace of modernism the German art school centred on Weimar, Dessau and Berlin fell foul of the Nazis and eventually closed its doors in 1933.  But the influence of the Bauhaus, which encouraged teachers and students to pursue their crafts together in design studios and workshops, has been pervasive and has impacted on all our lives. Subjects ranged from painting and graphics to architecture and interiors. Bauhaus 100: The Print Portfolios runs until December 1.
