The Women of the Bauhaus

The Bauhaus became famous as a progressive academic institution, since it declared equality between genders by accepting both female and male students into its programs during a time when women were not allowed to study in formal art academies. Some of the male pioneers of modern art, such as Josef Albers, László Moholy-Nagy, and Paul Klee are remembered as icons of the Bauhaus school, however most of the women artists who studied, taught, or made innovative works with them are not remembered at all, or have their names quoted in art books as the companions of their male counterparts.
