Marianne Brandt

1893 Chemnitz — 1983 Kirchberg bei Chemnitz

Marianne Brandt (née Liebe) was born in Chemnitz. She began to study painting and sculpture in Weimar for six years. In 1919, she married the Norwegian painter Erik Brandt and worked as a freelance artist in her own studio in Weimar. In 1921, she took courses in sculpture given by Richard Engelmann at the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts.

She began studying at the Bauhaus in Weimar in the winter semester of 1923/24, taking the preliminary course held by Josef Albers and László Moholy-Nagy. She also received instruction there from Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee. Brandt began to train as a silversmith at the metal workshop of the Bauhaus in 1924. This was unusual, because women at the Bauhaus were usually sent to weaving classes. After the Bauhaus relocated to Dessau, Brandt and her husband moved to Paris for nine months, with Brandt only resuming her studies in the summer of 1925. She designed the lamps for the new Bauhaus building in Dessau.
