Annely Juda Fine Art’s latest show is the first major one-person exhibition of Moholy-Nagy’s work in the UK since 1980.

László Moholy-Nagy (b. Hungary 1895 - d. Chicago 1946) was one of the most versatile artists of the twentieth century: a pioneer in painting, sculpture, photography and photograms as well as film making and design. He was also an ardent educator and arguably the most active and influential member of the Bauhaus both during its years in Weimer and in Berlin. In 1937 he dedicatedly continued the school's educational mission by establishing "The New Bauhaus" in Chicago.

This exhibition, comprising over 50 works, charts Moholy’s work from his early figurative paintings (1917) and drawings to the experimental photograms and photography of his final years. Exceptional and important examples of his Constructivist paintings are on show alongside his ground breaking photomontages.

Also exhibited is one of his Perspex sculptures – a medium that he used to stunning effect in two and three dimensions. The works on display highlight Moholy’s success at expressing a unified vision through many different media.

This is an unique and rare opportunity to view the diversity of Moholy’s innovation and to see the creative brilliance of one of the twentieth century’s most dynamic and important artists.

A 108 page fully illustrated catalogue is available which includes essays by the artist’s daughter Hattula Moholy-Nagy and scholar and author Krisztina Passuth.
