Catalogue for the exhibition held at the Royal Academy, 21 September to 27 October, 1968.
(Introduction) 'This exhibition of the bauhaus, which we are happy to welcome to the galleries of the royal academy through the generosity of the federal republic of Germany, celebrates a turning point in the history of European culture.
The bauhaus was the unique instrument, a new mixture of school, workshop, studio and laboratory, by means of which dr. Walter Gropius first brought about the marriage between art and industry; and from the beginning it involved artists such as Paul Klee, Kandinsky, Schlemmer, Feininger and bayer, who later became world-famous but were at that time as anxious as was Gropius himself to re-examine the basis of an art that would touch life at all points.'
