THIS IS A NICE VINTAGE PHOTO MATTED BY DEARSTYNE .
Howard Dearstyne (American, 1903-79), born in Albany New York, was one of the few Americans to attend the Bauhaus in Germany, a school of dynamic ideas and often contrasting views. The school was a microcosm of the passions and energies that lurched and later galvanized out of the ashes and quagmire of the First World War.At the Bauhaus there was a search to unite the new century's technology with the arts that were evolving in the service of society on a continent looking for a new template for mankind and social order. At the Bauhaus, Dearstyne was surrounded by some of the greatest artists and art theorists of the 20th Century.Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Walter Peterhanswere his friends as well as histutors. In 1932 after studying with the greatest living German architect, Mies van der Rohe, Dearstyne became the first American to receive a diploma from the Bauhaus. Chicago's own Bertram Goldberg (architect for Marina City) was also a student at the school that Elaine Hochman calls "The Crucible of Modernism."
