20 Bauhaus Prints To Add A Pop Of Color To Your Space
Bauhaus, German for "building house," has become synonymous with geometric and abstract art, architecture, and design, inspired by the early 20th-century movement that launched Staatliches Bauhaus, a utopian art school in Germany. Founded in 1919 by German architect Walter Gropius (and where Paul Klee, Vasily Kandinsky, and Josef Albers were teachers), the Bauhaus school influenced what we know as modern design today, and has inspired architects, designers and artists for more than 100 years. Often saturated in retro mid-century color or totally minimal black and white, Bauhaus prints can feel modern and retro all at once and can add a punch to most home decor styles. Are you feeling a little ho-hum by your home decor? Add a pop of color with these eye-catching prints inspired by or reproduced from Bauhaus exhibition posters and designs.
