ARTSY | The 20 Best Booths at The Armory Show 2019:

“In the first half of the 20th century, Hungarian artists living in their country and as expats abroad redefined what photography and images could do. László Moholy-Nagy, arguably the best known of the group, produced striking photograms, a term that he coined. The last-known photogram by the influential Bauhaus instructor, made in 1946, is on view here (and on offer for $75,000). It’s a gorgeous, supremely modern work that seems to foretell complex grayscale experiments by contemporary artists like Avery K. Singer.

Moholy-Nagy, however, is, for the first time, outshined in an exhibition by his largely overshadowed colleague György Kepes. Among the numerous examples of Kepes’s masterful photographs and photograms, his mixed-media paintings on view are a special surprise. Untitled (Skeleton in frame with newspaper) (1938–40), composed of newspaper, gouache, ink, and a photograph, is a relative steal at $28,000. Also on offer: poignant photo collages by Foto Ada ($6,500 each) and works by subsequent generations of Hungarian artists, including Janos Szász, André Kertész and Károly Kismányoky.”
