Gunta Stölzl was a textile master at Germany's Bauhaus school and workshop in the early 20th century. Born in 1897, she translated modernism into weavings and vice-versa.
She lived until 1983, working in Switzerland after the Nazi takeover of Germany. The website devoted to her work takes you through the various decades, showing how her ideas and colors changed.
During the 1920s she summarized Bauhaus attitudes to design, paring down shape and color to the minimal:
"The richness of colour and form became too licentious for us; it did not adapt itself, it did not subordinate itself to living. We tried to become more simple, to discipline our means...."
Stripes and monochromes in a woven throw.
But most of her life was about color
Something she did remarkably well.
All very licentious----especially for those who love a patchwork color scheme.
She was very productive over a long life so you can find many of her weavings, sketches and paintings by doing websearches for images. You'll find at least one book about her. Do check out the website focused on her here:
