The New Bauhaus, founded in 1937 in Chicago was the immediate successor to the Bauhaus dissolved in 1933 under the pressure of Hitler's Nazis. The Bauhaus master Laszlo Moholy-Nagy was the founder of the New Bauhaus and fully implemented the complete curriculum as developed by Walter Gropius. This New Bauhaus is mainly responsible for the gradual reduction of the until then unchallenged predominance of the "Beaux-Arts" tradition.
This casein is directly attributable to Robert Preusser's early years at the New Bauhaus. It is an excellent example of the New Bauhaus aesthetic.
Provenance: Estate of Robert Preusser
