Bauhaus literally means “construction house”. The Bauhaus Art School was established in the early 20th century and was founded by Walter Gropius. The School eventually morphed into its own modern art movement characterized by its unique approach to architecture and design. Today, Bauhaus is renowned for both its unique aesthetic that inventively combines the fine arts with arts and crafts as well as its enduring influence on modern and contemporary art.
