Summary
"The pioneering artist László Moholy-Nagy (1894-1946) worked across a range of art forms including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, film, advertising, and theater. This publication, which offers a fresh and extensive examination of his output, accompanies the first major American survey of Moholy's oeuvre in nearly a half century and represents the most extensive English-language book on the artist in thirty years. The catalogue reproduces a vast selection of Moholy's early paintings and photograms, his whimsical photomontages--all of which are reproduced together here for the first time--and late works in Plexiglas. Distinguished scholars offer new insights into his 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"--
