Maholy-Nagy was a painter, photographer, and a professor at the Bauhaus school. He was influenced by constructivism and an advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts. He collaborated works with other artists, including Lucia Maholy (his first wife), Marcek Breuer, Herbert Bayer, and Walter Gropius. However, his greatest accomplishment is the School of Design in Chicago, which is now part of the Illinois Institute of Technology.
