László Moholy-Nagy (American, born Hungary. 1895–1946)

Introduction

Source: Oxford University Press

American painter, sculptor, photographer, designer, film maker, theorist and teacher, of Hungarian birth. Moholy-Nagy’s importance in the 20th century is based as much on his theories as on his practical work. His ideologies related to the relationship between space, time and light and the interaction of man with these forces. His great achievement was that he applied his mystical outlook to highly practical enterprises and always recognized the purpose behind his creativity.
