Bidermeier to Bauhaus
Bidermeier to Bauhaus
Sangl, Sigrid

Frances Lincoln, 2000. 192 pages. Good secondhand condition.
This volume traces the evolution of eclectic European style from their roots in the Renaissance through the early 20th century. The 265 beautiful color photographs by Barbara and RenT Stoeltie and the text by Sigrid Sangl (furniture and woodwork department, Bavarian National Museum) illustrate and describe rooms in private houses throughout Germany and Austria, many of which have not been previously photographed. Topics include the influence of the Renaissance, Baroque grandeur and Roccoco fantasies, the impact of Classical antiquity and the Biedermeier style, the search for a true German style in the 19th century and the quest for a consciously modern one, and the rural tradition.
