The Bauhaus was a German art and design school founded in Weimar, Germany in 1919. It is widely considered to be the most influential art and design school of the 20th century. The school's philosophy focused on combining arts, crafts, and technology to create functional objects that were both aesthetically pleasing and accessible to a wider audience.


The school's approach emphasized simplicity and practicality, as well as teaching students how to incorporate modern materials into their designs. Its faculty included some of the most influential designers of the era including Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, László Moholy-Nagy and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. \n \nRobert Frost was an American poet who wrote primarily in the early 20th century. His work often featured themes related to rural life and nature. He is best known for his poem "The Road Not Taken," which is among the most famous poems of modern times. He won four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry and is considered one of America's greatest poets.


Both the Bauhaus and Frost embraced simplicity and functionality in their work, seeking to create beautiful things that were also practical. This minimalistic approach was based on an understanding of form as being more important than function. Both artists sought to take traditional elements of art or poetry, such as color or meter, and use them in a modern way for maximum effect. The intersection of beauty and practicality is seen in both the works of Frost and those from the Bauhaus era.
