Attached the basic information and pictures of the two chairs two compare (to contrast actually). The chairs that I chose are the opposite in terms of style, production and ideas. You will see it. Write about that, about the styles, first one – Art Nouveau, second one – Bauhaus. One wasn’t produced at all, the other one mass produced, etc. Talk about function, comfort etc. and why this comparison (contrast)/ these two objects put together makes sense. 300 words, times new roman 12, no need in bibliography or footnotes. let me know if you have any questions, thanks!

Arthur Haygate Mackmurdo
Mahogany with leather upholstery
Mackmurdo – architect (example of symbolist art – that builds on
impressionist painting).
The sinuous fretwork in the back of this chair caused a sensation
when it was exhibited in 1885. It is now seen as an early forerunner
of Art Nouveau Only five of these chairs are known to exist.
Considered one of the first manifestations of art nouveau,
the chair also reflects the Arts and Crafts movement, an antiindustrial
backlash that has its origins in England with Mackmurdo’s famous
William Morris and John Ruskin.
His poppy chair of about 1883, with its pierce-carved back of slender, sinuous flowers, was a
clear precursor of the Art Nouveau style.

Breuer, Marcel (designer)

Chromium-plated tubular steel, canvas
This chair was a refinement of the first, somewhat
complex tubular-steel chair without arms that Marcel
Breuer designed in 1926. That design was used to
furnish interiors at the Dessau Bauhaus school and in its
masters’ houses. The revised design – which changed the
form of the front legs and screwed the back legs to the
base – might be seen as having been composed from one
of Breuer’s Bauhaus stools (later nesting table), laid on
its side to form the seat and base, to which was added a
U-shaped length of tube (turned upside down) comprising rear legs and back. It was simple in
appearance and widely used in Breuer’s well-published interiors of the period. The chair was
made in small batches and retailed by Breuer and Lengyel’s Standard-Mobel by mid-1927 and
later by the firm of Thonet.
Breuer’s establishment of his own furniture firm (small though it was) was the source of great
tension between the designer and Walter Gropius, the head of the school, who expected all
Bauhaus designers to put their work forward for manufacture or licensing by the school’s own
limited company, established in 1926 (Bauhaus GmbH). In her diary, Ise Gropius wrote about ‘a
very unpleasant event with Breuer . . . [who has] made a deal about his metal chairs with a Berlin
friend without telling anybody and that will now lead to great difficulties in the negotiations . . .
for a Bauhaus GmbH.’ She noted the sense of betrayal felt as, ‘during the final negotiations [for
the new company] one of the most important pieces of the enterprise has been removed’.
Although Breuer had been thinking of leaving the Bauhaus since at least November 1926, the
incident over the furniture led him to resign formally two weeks later in April 1927, though he
was convinced to stay until the end of the next school term.
