EXHIBITION TIMES: 23 FEB – 26 MAY, 10AM–5PM DAILY
This exhibition presents works by Ludwig Hirschfeld Mack from the Geelong Gallery collection during the centenary of the influential Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture. Founded in the German city of Weimar in 1919, the school operated until 1933. Its influence spread to Australia through émigré artist Ludwig Hirschfeld Mack (1893–1965) who was a student from 1919.
Hirschfeld Mack was deported to Australia in 1940 and soon after was appointed to the position of art master at Geelong Grammar. This selection of paintings, prints, and three-dimensional objects is largely drawn from the significant gift made by his widow, Olive Hirschfeld, to Geelong Gallery in 1976.
