Description

This extensively illustrated survey casts new light on the lives and work of two of Modernism’s great pioneers. Josef Albers (1888-1976) and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy (1895-1947) were key figures at the Bauhaus in Germany, and following the rise of National Socialism and their exile, in the introduction of European Modernist ideas into American art and culture. At the Bauhaus the two artists’ work condensed art to its visual fundamentals: line, colour, texture and form. Albers and Moholy-Nagy creates a posthumous dialogue between these two seminal figures concentrating on the years from 1920 to 1950. Critical essays are combined with less formal reminiscences from those who knew the artists personally. A selection of writings by the artists are also included.
