In the Paepcke Gallery, Bernard Jazzar, curator of the Lynda and Stewart Resnick Collection, examines the Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) 1938 exhibition entitled Bauhaus 1919-1928. Although not the first presentation of Bauhaus material in the United States, it was the most extensive and most significant and a true example of Herbert Bayer’s innovative exhibit design. The enlarged photographs presented in the gallery, provided by MoMA, give a general impression of the exhibition and insight into Bayer’s unusual approach to exhibition design.
