Print, Reimann School and Studios London Opening

This is a Print. It was designed by Edward McKnight Kauffer and made for (as the client) The Reimann School and Studios of Industrial and Commercial Art. It is dated ca. 1936 and we acquired it in 1997. Its medium is letterpress. It is a part of the department.

The Reimann School was the first school of commercial art in Britain. Founded in Berlin, Reimann opened in London in January 1937. The school emphasized training in the latest modernist styles from across Europe. Some teachers came from Germany, while others were recruited locally. The school taught courses in topics that reflected the expanding role of the modern designer: display and exhibition design, commercial art, fashion and dressmaking, photography and film, and interior design. Kauffer served on the advisory council and both he and Dorn lectured there part time.

This object was donated by Grace Schulman. It is credited Gift of Grace Schulman.
