Otti Berger, The Bauhaus.

We went to the Bauhaus Archiv today and marvelled at the exhibits: Mies van der Rohe furniture (a sleek, rosewood lacquered desk seriously made me drool); Marcel Breuer tubular steel chairs; and a beautiful, shallow, brass and ebony teapot. But my favourite pieces were portraits of one of the students, Otti Berger, posing in outfits from her dressing up box. I fell in love with her!

(Otti Berger, by Gertrude Arndt, 1932.)
