Herbert Bayer 1900 to 1928: The Bauhaus and Pre-Bauhaus Years is the first in a chronological series of exhibitions that trace Bayer’s development from his earliest days in Austria through his years in the United States. Bayer was first a student and later a master (teacher) at the Bauhaus, generally regarded as the most important school of art and design of the 20th century. In Colorado, Bayer is best known as the designer of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, where he was able to apply the Bauhaus concept of “total design” across the Institute campus. This exhibition shows Bayer in his early years as a young artist with natural talent. The Bauhaus gave him principles that would guide his entire career of more than 60 years.
