Touch of garlic

June 28, 2012

I enjoyed Sally Feldman's article on the Bauhaus' contributions to art and architecture ("Workshop of the world", Opinion, 14 June). She is right to point out that "the most profound legacy of the Bauhaus is its transformation of art and design education". Recalling Alma Mahler Gropius' famous characterisation of the Bauhaus style as "garlic on the breath", I wonder if the art-foundation courses praised by Feldman for upholding the Bauhaus legacy should also follow this aspect of the model?
