  •  Ludwig Hirschfeld Mack (1893-1965). Hirschfeld Mack enrolled at the Weimar Bauhaus in 1919 and studied under Johannes Itten, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, and was apprenticed to Lyonel Feininger in the print workshop. He was deported to Australia in 1940 and soon after his release from detention in 1942, was appointed to the position of art master at Geelong Grammar School.  As part of the celebration for the Bauhaus centenary the Geelong Gallery is featuring some Hirschfeld Mack's work.
