Gunta Stolzl (1897-1983) was the only woman among the masters at the Bauhaus, the twentieth century's most important school of design, architecture and art. An inventive textile design, Stolzl was head of the weaving workshop, and during her tenure there transformed it into a flourishing, productive enterprise. This volume illustrates over one hundred key works by Stolzl, accompanied by excerpts drawn from her journals, letters and articles, some of which are published here for the first time. Accompanied by explanatory comments and a foreword by Monika Stadler, Stolzl's daughter, these personal writings offer an intimate view of the artist's life and work between 1917 and 1931, from the time she was a student in Munich to her service as a Red Cross nurse during the war, and continuing through her years at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau until she founded her own hand-weaving business in Zurich. The chronological organization of the texts, paired with related works, gives rise to many surprising discoveries and provides a vivid portrait of Gunta Stolzl as both an individual and an artist.
