Gunta Stölzl (1897 – 1983)

If money was no object, these textile studies by Gunta Stölzl would hang on our walls.  The German textile designer and weaver played a fundamental role in the development of the Bauhaus school’s weaving workshop. Her work typifies the distinctive style of Bauhaus textiles. She created immense change within the textile field by uniting art practices with traditional textile techniques. She was the only woman to teach at the Bauhaus and became the first woman Master at the school. She has also written a book covering her teaching tenure called, “Gunta Stölzl: Bauhaus Master”.
