The Charnel-House

Fritz Kuhr
Wall-painting scheme for the studio of Paul Klee's Master House
Bauhaus Dessau, designed by Walter Gropius (1926)
Tempera, silver bronze, and pencil on paper, 24 × 34 cm

The walls are painted to match the architectonic divisions of the room precisely. Just as the room is divided into two sections, the ceiling is divided into two rectangular fields of color. One of them is black. Flooded by the milky light from the horizontal ceiling lamps, this black fills the hall with a cool repose. At the edges of an architectonic section the surfaces are equal.

Bauhaus color: Rare color images by Bauhaus students (Herbert Bayer, Farkas Molnár, Joost Schmidt, Peter Keler), with text by the Polish modernist Tadeusz Peiper
