aka piet zwart. there is little doubt that the work of piet zwart is worthy of lengthy study. i have several books about his work and am always eager to add to that collection. his work is coveted and commands a premium price. i have had to save up a bit before purchasing several pieces in my collection. many years ago, after being in gmund, germany, for several days working with the büttenfabrik gmund, i spent a couple of nights in munich. after a few days of art directing photography for their corporate brochure, wonderfully photographed by gentl and hyers, i was walking around and noticed a gallery exhibiting the work of mats gustafson, one of my wife’s favorites artist. just a few doors down was what I thought was a book store but turned out to be the auction house scheider henn. coincidentally, they were having an auction featuring bauhaus-related materials. needless to say, i was pretty excited. i was able to view many of the lots and there was a group of items from holland, including this simple brochure for the door manufacturer bruynzeel i am sharing today. zwart did a great deal of work for bruynzeel. there is so much to this little jewel. the lower case—no surprise i like that. the transparency. the use of color. all combine to make a rich experience for a mundane subject. there were several other items in this auction which i will share another time. enjoy.
