          Bayer was committed to Bauhaus design principles throughout his career. This print, produced in 1969, plays with the use of simple shapes that were central to Bauhaus visual theory. The image seems to be a circle, but one composed of triangles and squares, drawing on the tension between man-made and natural forms.

          Artist details

          Herbert Bayer was a graphic designer, painter, sculptor and architect closely associated with the Bauhaus. Born in 1900 in Linz, Austria, he moved to Weimar in Germany to study at the Bauhaus under Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and László Moholy-Nagy, later becoming director of printing and advertising at the school. After leaving to become art director of Berlin Vogue, he emigrated to America in 1938 where he designed and curated two Bauhaus exhibitions. His work became more varied during this period, including architecture projects, typographic design, large scale sculpture and creative consultancy.
