Henry van de Velde and the Bauhaus artists in Jena

This walk through the town creates a link between Henry van de Velde’s Art Nouveau and the Bauhaus with the Gropius Bauhaus mansions Zuckerkandl and Auerbach. As early as 1911, Henry van de Velde created a work of art of European standing with his monument for Ernst Abbe. The Jena Art Society was seen as an open forum for the Modern Movement and so a close relationship developed between the Bauhaus artists, the University and industry in Jena.
