    Sadly, this book was a horrible read, and I couldn t even finish it I got about 300 pages in, and decided that I just couldn t take any Its only saving grace is the extremely interesting subject matter, but if you are interested in learning about the Bauhaus school, I would turn else where The book is set up as a seri...

    Nicholas Fox Weber personally spent a lot of time with the Alberses Josef and Anni , acted as executor of Anni Albers s estate, observed the couple s eccentric experience with American consumer culture, and mitigated their sometimes petulant attitude toward other people There probably isn t a better American suited to compile a few short biographies of some of the core Bauhauslers, because few Americans pr

    Not always the best writing, but Fox Weber was friends with two Bauhaslers as they were called Josef Albers and Anni Albers His involvement in Anni Albers story provides an interesting female perspective on the famous German design school although she would probably swat at me for saying that.

    Not as exciting as I anticipated I expected the story of The Bauhaus Group to be as riveting as Peggy Guggenheims Art Lover or Frederick Kaisler s Art of this Century , instead it was excruciatingly boring I did however, enjoy reading about Gropius, Klee and Kandisnky s lives, but somehow I knew that once the author got to the Albers life the gossip wouldn t be as juicy, since most of the recollections came from Ann..

    Great subject lots of flaccid gossip but he can t write The book has all the earmarks of a word processor on steroids too much trivia without clear story line jumping around in different places and times.Very interesting moments but Edit it and enough about the author and his personal life with the Albers, Isn t that a separate book How could he write this book after finishing his Corbu book only a year earlier Slow don
