Albers and Moholy-Nagy: From the Bauhaus to the New World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This beautifully illustrated book highlights the contrasts and correspondences in the lives and work of two of and#160;Modernismand#8217;s greatest innovators, Josef Albers (1888and#150;1976) and Land#225;szland#243; Moholy-Nagy (1895and#150;1947). Beginning in the 1930s, Albers and Moholy-Nagy each developed a rigorously abstract language that condensed art to its visual fundamentals: line, color, texture, light, and form. This language experienced a creative explosion during their Bauhaus years, when both artists moved freely between media and disciplines. Essays by leading scholars follow the artistsand#8217; separate paths through to their emigration to the United States, where each continued to push tirelessly the conventions of artistic practiceand#151;Albers at Black Mountain College in North Carolina and then at Yale University, and Moholy-Nagy in Chicago at the New Bauhaus School and the Institute of Design. As highly influential teachers, Albers and Moholy-Nagy became important catalysts for the transmission of Modernist ideas from Europe to America.

Spanning four decades and featuring works in a variety of media, including painting, collage, glass, moving sculpture, photography, film, furniture, and graphic design, Albers and Moholy-Nagy reveals for the first time the range of achievement of these two important figures and is essential to our understanding of the evolution of Modernism.
