Gunta Stölzl

Gunta Stölzl was a textile artist that flourished during the Bauhaus movement. She was one of the only Bauhaus female textile masters at the time and her contributions to the field were significant. She helped develop the weaving department at the Bauhaus school with her master technical skills. She became a mentor to many textile artists of the time before becoming the director of the weaving department. I also love her beautiful watercolors that are just as vibrant as the textiles. I have included some of her earlier works, sketches she made for her textiles, fabric swatches and lastly a photograph of Gunta Stölzl at her loom. Her works are part of many museum collections around the world. Hopefully one day I will see them in person.
