Laszlo Moholy-Nagy: Painting after Photography (The Phillips Collection Book Prize Series)

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This provocative book examines crucial philosophical questions Lszl Moholy-Nagy explored in theory and practice throughout his career. Why paint in a photographic age? Why work by hand when technology holds so much promise? The stakes of painting, or not painting, were tied to much larger considerations of the ways art, life, and modernity were linked for Moholy and his avant-garde peers. Joyce Tsai's close analysis reveals how Moholy's experience in exile led to his attempt to recuperate painting, not merely as an artistic medium but as the space where the trace of human touch might survive the catastrophes of war. Lszl Moholy-Nagy: Painting after Photography will significantly reshape our view of the artist's oeuvre, providing a new understanding of cultural modernism and the avant-garde.

This Book is in Excellent Condition.
