Description - In Focus by Weston J. Naef

Hungarian born Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) was influential not only as a photographer but also as a filmmaker, teacher, and painter. He taught at the Bauhaus in Germany and, after fleeing the Nazi regime, settled in Chicago, where he founded the Institute of Design. He pioneered the photomontage and created the camera-less medium of the "photogram." This book, the second in the Getty's In Focus series, features sixty reproductions from the Getty's outstanding collection of this important photographer's work--each described by Katherine Ware of the Museum's department of photographs. The book also includes the edited transcript of a recent colloquium that provides the historical and critical perspective necessary for understanding Moholy-Nagy's vital contribution to twentieth-century art. The colloquium participants were Charles Hagan, Thomas Barrow, Jeannine Fiedler, Leland Rice, Hattula Moholy-Nagy, and Weston Naef and Katherine Ware.
