Moholy Nagy photogram
Moholy-Nagy was a key member of the Bauhaus movement

Moholy-Nagy was a key member of the Bauhaus movement and is among the most influential artists of the 20th century.

Sotheby's comments: "This photogram is one of the ten subjects from what is known as the 'Giedion portfolio', produced around 1929.

"The aim was to publish these in a limited edition of twenty, but it remains uncertain whether the complete edition was ever achieved. The whereabouts of the original is unknown.

"A spiral shaped object may have been used, as it is achieving a three-dimensional spatial effect. Working with such three-dimensional paper shapes is something Moholy-Nagy took up again in later work phases."

Peter Beard's Loliondo Lion Charge (1964) is valued at £80,000-120,000 ($118,224-177,336).

Beard combines photography with writing and collage, presenting his work as part of a journal. The present lot includes the artist's own blood alongside a description of his encounter with the lion.
