"I want to create human types, not portraits and portray the essence of a room and not interior" – in these short lines Oskar Schlemmer explained the essence of its art. His topic is the space as such and a human as such. It would be incorrect to see anonymized, even alienated people in these carefully composed mannequins. Not by coincidence they remind the archaic models which are worshipped by Schlemmer as the highest expression of human image.

For a long time Oscar Schlemmer wasn’t exhibited in the full. Any fundamental scientific researches on his works were almost impossible. The reason for that was Schlemmer’s heirs of the second generation who took pictures back from museums and forbade reproductions. This made the great Bauhaus artist “a famous incognito”. While some of his works obtained iconic meaning, the others vanished from the consciousness of modernity. Recently, the situation has changed. The Stuttgart City Galery dedicated prepare an exhibition of Schlemmer’s works that gained a worldwide respect. The catalog of the exhibition, issued 70 years after the artist’s death, contained a wide and richly illustrated presentation of his works

Representation of typical scenes of daily life in painting, which can distinguish between peasant, bourgeois and courtly themes.

The genre reached its peak and immense popularity in the Dutch painting of the 17th century. In the 18th century, especially in France, the courtly and gallant painting comes to the fore while in Germany the bourgeois character was emphasised.
