And you will also have to describe a painting that I will show during the test. Remember how we talk about pictures:


We also discussed beauty and why it matters, so be prepared to talk about it. The film Banishment of Beauty talked about the Bauhaus school of art. Here's what you need to know (from Wikipedia):

1st Bauhaus school in Weimar, Germany

The Bauhaus school was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar, Germany, and combined crafts with the fine arts.
Walter Gropius (1883-1969), modernist architect

The name means "School of Building". In spite of this, and that its founder was an architect, the Bauhaus did not have an architecture department during the first years of its existence. It was founded with the idea of creating a single code of aesthetics to be used for all the arts, under the principle that form follows function. The Bauhaus style became one of the most influential currents in Modernist architecture and design. The Bauhaus had a profound influence upon subsequent developments in art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design, and typography. It operated from 1919 to 1933, when the school was closed under pressure from the Nazis.
