Design for wallpaper.1930-31. Unique vintage ferrotyped gelatin silver print collage. 45,8 x 40 cm. Mounted to board (some wear, time-stained in edges), photographer's estate stamp on mount verso

Between 1929-1931, Elsa Thiemann's formative years at the Bauhaus in Dessau were marked by influential teachers like Josef Albers, Joost Schmidt, and, notably, Walter Peterhans, who guided her in photography. Her artistic development was strongly shaped by the New Objectivity movement and an emphasis on advertising photography in her Bauhaus education, instilling in her a deep appreciation for structure and innovative composition. Here she met her future husband, the painter Hans Thiemann, in 1930. Following her studies, she returned to Berlin in 1931, embarking on a career as a freelance press photographer until 1960 when she relocated to Hamburg with her husband, who had been appointed as a Professor at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste. – Some retouched spots, a few light surface scuff marks, some pressure marks from mounting and some edge wear in individual prints, photos lifting off of mount in some areas, otherwise in good condition.

Provenance: From the estate of the photographer
