Unique Z-fold ink abstract painting on paper by Xanti Schawinsky (signed), realized in 1960. It is painted on one long continuous side. The total length is approx. 940 cm. The rediscovered oeuvre of first generation Bauhaus artist Xanti Schawinsky offers to the contemporary art world a genuine reservoir of aesthetic memory of the 20th century avant-garde. Schawinsky’s highly original oeuvre covers a whole domain of genres and media that is very characteristic for the interdisciplinary approach of the Bauhaus school: his prolific practice spans from paintings to drawings, from experimental photography to stage design, from jazz music and complex theater work to exhibition design, commercial graphic and product design. Schawinsky was one of the most protean characters at the Bauhaus. He initiated and inspired many activities at the Bauhaus with a verve that revealed him as a true performer, a modernist dandy and a Bauhaus protagonist par excellence. Schawinsky’s work communicates today still across generations and his artistic vision opens up a direct dialogue with a contemporary aesthetic sensibility.
