In Chicago, the New Bauhaus had just closed for financial reasons and László Moholy-Nagy opened his own school, The School of Design. Although very absorbed by the organisation of the school and its teaching, he continued to paint at home. The alphanumeric title of this work characterises the approach of the painter, who thereby wished to relate industrial products to the image. His style in this period of the 1940s is dynamic, marked by curved forms and light colours. The painter renounced his rigorous writing on suprematism that marked the start of his career in favour of a more decorative art.
