New York Times Review of the exhibition


1 October 1985



Herbert Bayer, a painter, architect, graphic and industrial designer and one of the last ''masters'' of the Bauhaus, the influential design school founded by Walter Gropius in 1919 at Weimar, Germany, died yesterday at his home in Montecito, Calif. He was 85 years old and had been in poor health for some time. Although he had shown widely as a painter, sculptor, tapestry maker and photographer, it was his work in graphic and industrial design that was best known to the general public. His pioneering experiments in typography, layout and design helped elevate the style and tone of American advertising. Arriving in New York in 1938 as a refugee from Nazi Germany, he made an immediate impact here as the designer of a comprehensive exhibition on the Bauhaus for the Museum of Modern Art, followed by two other exhibitions dealing with the art of World War II.
