Herbert Bayer (Austrian/American1900 - 1985) worked variously as advertising artist, photographer, painter, sculptor, architect and landscape designer, reflecting his training at the Bauhaus from 1921 to 1925. In 1925, he took over the printing and advertising offices of the Bauhaus in Dessau, where he designed Bauhaus publications. Photography became his preferred mode of expression in the 1930s and his work from this period shows the influence of Surrealism. His photomontages typically show blended levels of reality and dreamlike images. He moved to New York in 1938 where he curated two Bauhaus exhibitions, which later toured internationally from 1967 to 1971.
