The products are just as described, the delivery is prompt and so is the support. I made a mistake and clicked 2X on the order. Not only did one order be taken back but the site paid for the postage.

Bauhaus

The Bauhaus School was founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius at Weimar, Germany, and later relocated to Dessau, Berlin, and, eventually, Chicago. The Bauhaus has had an incalculable effect on modern architecture and design, yielding hallmarks of the modern style in everything from skyscrapers to the "applied design" of teapots and toasters. The main aim of the Bauhaus was to join form and function, uniting principles of creative design with the tenets and technologies of modern science and industry. As chairman of the Working Council for Art, Gropius sought to bring all art together "under one roof,” creating architecture designed with the worker in mind. The Bauhaus was a response to the demand for buildings of specialized function; in the school, art and engineering came together. Its aim was political as well; founded in the capital of a tense, tumultuous post-WWI Germany, the Bauhaus was a self-conscious rejection of all things bourgeois. Like the Futurists, those at the Bauhaus were intensely interested in using "new" materials like glass and steel. The Bauhaus was a collectivist vision, focused on purity and utility; it shunned "bourgeois" elements like cornices, eaves, color and a surplus of space. Roofs were flat and facades sheer; rationality, not comfort, ruled the day. When the Nazis rose to power in 1937, the Bauhaus moved to Chicago (where it later morphed into the Chicago Institute of Design), and Mies van der Rohe, a successor of Gropius, also moved to Chicago. As a result, the principles of the Bauhaus quickly pollinated the world, and its influence continues to be felt in typography and industrial design as well as architecture.

Best website to shop with. Great prices and shipping is fast.
- H Jordan in Salton City, CA
I agree with the other 5-star reviews. Compact and sturdy. I use a waterbrush, not the included brush.
- Russell in Tupelo, MS
This easel is so easy to set up, adjust, and break down. I'm buying a second one for my middle-schooler. It works great with boards, canvases, and both sizes of frame/tapestry loom that I use regularly.It is perfect for working outdoors on uneven ground.
