Correspondence between Voysey and Hermann Muthesius : Hermann Muthesius (1861-1927) was a German architect, author and diplomat, perhaps best known for promoting many of the ideas of the English Arts and Crafts movement within Germany and for his subsequent influence on early pioneers of German architectural modernism such as the Bauhaus. He was the author of Das englische Haus (Ernst Wasmuth, 1904-5).
