Biography

Lucia Moholy, born Lucia Schulz, (18 January 1894, Prague, Austria-Hungary — 17 May 1989, Zürich, Switzerland) was a photographer. Her photography documenting the architecture and products of the Bauhaus introduced their work to a post-World War Two audience. However, Moholy was seldom credited for her work, which was often attributed to László Moholy-Nagy or Walter Gropius. Moholy was the first wife of fellow artist and photographer László Moholy-Nagy.
