Ida Kerkovius Ida Kerkovius - Biography

Ida Kerkovius, born in the Latvian capital Riga, is regarded as one of the most important representatives of avant-garde in Germany.
The master student of Adolf Hölzel had already discovered the enormous powers of colors in their reduced form in the famous "Dachau School", the cradle of Modernism. When she changed to the Bauhaus in the early 1920s, where she met Johannes Itten, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, Ida Kerkovius could use her knowledge in a very special technique: weaving. Her famous image carpets showed her independent style that combined expressive but harmonic color values with simplified abstract forms and created lyrical-poetic effects. Her paintings and watercolors, pastels and oil chalk paintings as well as the graphic prints are of no lesser importance.
In 2001 she was honored with a comprehensive retrospective by the Museum Ostdeutsche Galerie in Regensburg and the Arzemju Makslas muzejs in Riga. Alexej von Jawlensky once said about Ida Kerkovius that she was "all art".
