About this item

An unprecedented study of an important 20th-century artist and his diverse body of work This exceptional book offers a fresh and extensive examination of the work of pioneering artist László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) . The first major American survey of his oeuvre in nearly a half century and the most extensive English-language book on the artist in thirty years, the catalogue offers an integrated presentation of Moholy's production across a range of art forms including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, film, advertising, and theater. Distinguished scholars offer new insights into Moholy's materials and working methods; the relation among writing, administration, and art making in his practice; and his influence on contemporary art. Particular emphasis is given to Moholy's American years and his leadership of the Chicago Bauhaus as well as his reception as a painter.
