László M Nagy, Abstract composition, 1925. László Moholy-Nagy (July 20, 1895 – November 24, 1946) was a Hungarian painter and photographer as well as the professor at the Bauhaus school. The Bauhaus was a school in Germany that combined craft and fine art, and was famous for the approach to design that is learned and taught.
While many of his contemporaries moved to the United States and elsewhere in Europe, Muller-Brockmann based himself in Zurich and established his reputation there. He adapted his approach to a changing world, moving from an early illustrative style to a modern constructivist approach, making full use of geometrical form and the grid system to provide an underlying structure to graphic work
