This is the first monograph on the female painters, photographers, architects, sculptors, and designers of the vanguard Bauhaus School, who helped shape the cultural history of the twentieth century. This monograph celebrates the work of twenty women artists who created in the teaching, workshop, and production branches of the Bauhaus women whose names, masterpieces, and extraordinary lives have only gradually become known to us. Recognized figures such as Anni Albers the first textile artist to be exhibited at the MoMA, and Marianne Brandt whose elegant geometric tableware have become classic Alessi designs are showcased alongside previously unknown artists such as Gertrud Grunow, who taught Harmonizing Science; Helene Borner, who led the textile workshop; and Ilse Fehling, a sculptor and the most sought-after set and costume designer of her generation. Founded in 1919, the Bauhaus and most of its students were poor and lacking in just about everything. What it did have, however, was an abundance of enthusiasm, talent, and innovative creativity. Furthermore, over half of those seeking to enroll at the school were women.

This tornado of the fairer sex was initially seen as a threat, and the weaving mill was quickly turned into a separate womens facility. Nevertheless, the mill became a hotbed of groundbreaking production, whose impact far surpassed national borders, as demonstrated by the international acclaim of photographers Lucia Moholy, Florence Henri, and Grete Stern.
