"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th
anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany —
presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from
the Busch-Reisinger Museum's extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in
1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th

Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the

Harvard's department of architecture in 1937. Today the
Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside

including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and
László Moholy-Nagy. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major
