Harvard Bauhaus Collection Now Online

by Margaret Penney | November 2, 2016

Just three years shy of the 100 year anniversary of the Bauhaus School, Harvard has made a massive repository of over 32,000 Bauhaus-related objects from the museum’s collections and archives now online. The collection is the largest in the world and has grown over the years as central Bauhaus figures and students have made donations of their own work and others. Photographs, textiles, paintings, sculptures, and periodicals are digitized and are all available for browsing:
