1919 was a new start in Europe. So many men left their life in the 1st world war and women saw a chance to get more influence in public life in politic affairs, art, siences:  Rosa Luxemburg, Käthe Kollwitz, Marie Curie, Marguerite Duras, Coco Chanel etc.

The State Bauhaus was founded by Walter Gropius as a school of arts in Weimar in 1919. As the Bauhaus was a combination of crafts and arts, its nature and concept was regarded as something completely new back then. Today, the historical Bauhaus is the most influential educational establishment in the fields of architecture, art and design. The Bauhaus existed from 1919 to 1933 and today the world considers it to be the home of the avant-guard of classical modern style in all fields of liberal and applied arts. The resonance of the Bauhaus can still be felt today, essentially characterizing the image of German design abroad.

There was also an  Austrian woman involved: Friedl Dicker-Brandeis.
