On the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Bauhaus, this exhibition showcases the work of one of its students, René Halkett (1900-1983), who studied under the renowned artists Klee and Kandinsky.
Escaping the rise of fascism in the 30s, Halkett sought exile in Britain. Moving to Cornwall, he continued to create based on the Bauhaus principle of form following function.
