Description
This collection includes correspondence, clippings, articles, typescripts, and photographs documenting architectural styles worldwide taken mostly in the 1960's by the architectural historian and critic Sibyl Moholy-Nagy. The images and articles relate to the history of architecture and were used to support Sibyl Moholy-Nagy's teaching. The material is arranged alphabetically by Moholy-Nagy's original code and subject divisions. Also included is an important group of periodicals and documents pertaining to the Futurist Movement in Italy. Along with the negatives of architectural subjects are 3 small collections of slides of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's artwork, and a separate group of black and white photographs of his artwork from an exhibition in 1969.
