Bauhaus Centenary - Ludwig Hirschfeld Mack

The centenary of the influential Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture will be celebrated around the world in 2019. Founded in the German city of Weimar in 1919, the school operated until 1933. Its influence spread to Australia through émigré artist Ludwig Hirschfeld Mack (1893–1965).

Hirschfeld Mack enrolled at the Weimar Bauhaus in 1919 and studied under Johannes Itten, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, and was apprenticed to Lyonel Feininger in the print workshop. He was deported to Australia in 1940 and soon after his release from detention in 1942, was appointed to the position of art master at Geelong Grammar School. This selection of paintings, prints, and three-dimensional objects by Hirschfeld Mack is largely drawn from the significant gift made by his widow, Olive Hirschfeld, to Geelong Gallery in 1976.
