Press-Kit: „150th anniversary of Henry van de Velde’s birth“

A European artist of many talents

The Belgian artist Henry van de Velde was an exponent of Classical Modernism who paved the way for the Bauhaus movement. His repertoire ranged from the architectural design of buildings and interiors to the design of jewellery and everyday objects. Numerous commissions brought van de Velde to Germany in 1900, where he left behind an impressive legacy. The German National Tourist Board (GNTB) is using the 150th anniversary of Henry van de Velde’s birth as an opportunity to highlight his work and to also promote the theme of architecture and design in Germany.
