"This extensively illustrated survey is the first to examine in depth the contrasts and correspondences in the lives and work of two of Modernism's great pioneers, Josef Albers (1888-1976) and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy (1895-1947). At the Bauhaus in Germany the two artists' work condensed art to its visual fundamentals: line, colour, texture, light and form." "Featuring many seldom-seen works in a variety of media, including glass, sculpture, painting, film, photo-collage, photography, and graphic and furniture design, Albers and Moholy-Nagy reveals for the first time the range and variety of the achievement of these two seminal figures. Essays by leading authorities are combined with less formal reminiscences from those who knew the artists personally, throwing new light on their life and work. A selection of writings by the artists is also included."--BOOK JACKET.
