    • Oskar Schlemmer was a pupil of Holzel. He taught at the Bauhaus, 1920-29, where he had a great influence, and in Breslau and Berlin until 1933, after which he had to live in retirement until his death.

      He did a great deal of theatrical design, and his paintings have the slightly dessicated air of those Bauhaus products that were emphatically machine-made.

      There are many works in Stuggart, and others in Basle, Cologne, Hartford Conn., Harvard Univ. and New York (M of MA).


      Trivia:

      • With her husband she founded the movement Orphism in 1911, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes.

      • In 1923 he was hired as Master of Form at the Bauhaus theatre workshop, after working some time at the workshop of sculpture.

      • Enrolled at the Stuttgart Academy in 1912.

      • Schlemmer's work was seen as degenerate by the Nazis and he was dismissed from his post at the Bauhaus.

      • He had his theories on art published and a comprehensive book of his letters and diary entries from 1910 to 1943 is also available.
