Painter, graphic artist, typographer, photographer, and sculptor, Werner Graeff (1901–78) was a key figure in the Bauhaus and the Constructivism movements. Alongside reproductions of his major works, including pictograms, multiples, drawings, and other graphic works, this book presents the story of Graeff’s life—including, for the first time, the moving autobiography he wrote at the urging of his friend Mies van der Rohe, The Obstacle Race of the Twentieth Century. Through an analysis of Graeff’s work with the Bauhaus and the De Stijl group of Dutch artists, as well as the Ring Neue Werbegestalter founded by Kurt Schwitters, we see his prominent place in the vibrant life and culture of the German art world of the period.
