This biography of the Constructivist leader László Moholy-Nagy illustrates his difficult yet victorious struggle for a total approach to seeing-teaching-creating. Written by Sibyl Moholy-Nagy, László’s second wife and lifetime collaborator, she witnessed many of the defining moments of the Bauhaus movement and its migration to the United States and its continuation as the Chicago New Bauhaus and Institute of Design. An excellent first-person account.
With an Introduction by Walter Gropius
