"With all the best wishes in the world, it is impossible to suppress the feeling that there is something essentially heavy, forced and repellent in most of the Bauhaus work. They are under suspicion of being modern for the sake of being modern and not because of any necessities of their system of living."

-quoth art critic Henry McBride (1867 1962) in response to the groundbreaking 1938 exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, Bauhaus 1919 - 1928. McBride did not mince words in expressing his belief that the Bauhaus was not a genuine art school and that the MoMA showed poor judgment by lamenting it's passing. McBride is remembered as having been a longtime advocate of modernism, a champion of the 1913 Armory Show, and supporter of "the new and untried", but for him, the Bauhaus represented the art of the poseur.

When the Bauhaus was closed, an unofficial version opened in Chicago; click here to read about Bauhaus West.
