Oskar Schlemmer (4 September 1888 – 13 April 1943) was a German painter, sculptor, designer and choreographer associated with the Bauhaus school.
In 1923, he was hired as Master of Form at the Bauhaus theatre workshop, after working at the workshop of sculpture. His most famous work is Triadisches Ballett (Triadic Ballet), which saw costumed actors transformed into geometrical representations of the human body in what he described as a "party of form and colour". From the time of the earliest performances of the Triadic Ballet there are only a few photographs in existence. A series of famous shots of the dances and figures was made in 1926 by the photographer Karl Grill (1889-1966) in Donaueschingen. Ernst Schneider made group photos in 1927.

    Well received BUT: please don't use ribble carton in the future because that does bend. The print has a small crease but still in the white border and not in the image, so not too much harm done.
