Herbert Bayer Archive

Herbert Bayer (1900-1985) was a student of the Weimar Bauhaus, and in 1925 served as head of the newly created workshop for print and advertising at the Dessau Bauhaus. In 1928 he moved to Berlin, where he worked as a graphic designer in advertising and as an artistic director of an advertising agency called Studio Dorland. After moving to the United States in 1938, Bayer organized the Bauhaus 1919–1928 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (in New York) and became an important exponent of the New Bauhaus school in America. This archive includes original b&w photographic prints of his exhibitions, advertisement clippings, magazine covers, and other examples of his exhibition and graphic design work in Germany and the United States.
