Bauhaus Goes West: Modern Art and Design in Britain and America

by Alan Powers

Thames & Hudson, £24.95

Renowned architectural historian and author Alan Powers delves into the legacy of the revolutionary Bauhaus School, telling the story of those who emigrated west following the school's closure in 1933, bringing the Bauhaus style with them to Britain and America.

Powers examines the contributions made by artists such as Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Josef and Anni Albers to art and design in these countries, after 1933 and well into the 1960s. A century after the school's founding, his detailed research then goes on to ask just what the Bauhaus means to us today.
