Lot description
Paper: 50 x 65 cm
Stamped and signed on verso, Hattula Moholy-Nagy

László Moholy-Nagy was a pioneer of his time, exploring the transformation of light, reflection and transparency through different media. In the 1930s and 1940s, Moholy-Nagy developed an approach to color photography using Kodachrome film that captured elements of space and time.
This wonderful collection of 12 photographs exemplifies Moholy-Nagys' commitment to pushing the boundaries of photography and to broadening our visual lexicon. He considered the dye transfer method, the only method available for printing color at that time, an interpretive method and longed for a process equivalent to the negative/positive relationship of black and white printing. Today, the process known as Chromogenic printing, used mostly when printing from film, provides the technique that Moholy-Nagy anticipated.
Selected solo exhibitions include the Gemeentemuseum, the Bauhaus-Archiv, The Museum of Modern Art Kamakurra & Hayama, the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, Malmö Konsthall and the Sprengel Museum.
