Unprecedented in current literature, Bauhaus Gals presents nearly 90 artists and artisans through texts and photographic portraits, many published for the very first time. With more than 400 portrait photographs taken between 1919 and 1933, Bauhaus Gals creates a visual impression of the women artists who attended the most progressive art school of the 20th century and, departing from there, often changed the world of art, architecture, design, and even politics.Recent archival discoveries revive the biographies of better-known talents, such as Marianne Brandt, Gertrud Arndt and Lucia Moholy.

Moreover, the volume reminds us of other women artists whose names, nearly forgotten, also stand for early pioneers of gender equality, refusing to follow the beaten tracks society and their families insisted on. Insightful biographical data sheds light on each artist's individual struggle, persistence in the face of adversity, and incredible accomplishments. In this grand family album, we discover a group of unique trailblazers whose legacy paved the way for women artists after them.
