Herbert Bayer spent an artistically fruitful decade in Berlin following his tenure at the Bauhaus. His graphic designs of the time are characterized by inventive integration of typography, photomontage, and graphics. Born of Bayer’s multidisciplinary method, these designs appear fresh, even today.

Herbert Bayer: Berlin Graphics 1928–1938 is organized by the Denver Art Museum.
