Description

A classic of modernism – a new Feininger retrospective in the light of current knowledge

Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) was a painter, graphic artist and caricaturist. From 1919 he served as one of the original masters at the Bauhaus in Weimar and later in Dessau. In 1937 he emigrated to New York, where he worked until the end of his life. In addition to his famous Expressionist images of architecture, the publication presents all the facets of his oeuvre and stations of his life based on the latest research.

With some 140 paintings, drawings, caricatures, watercolours, woodcuts, photographs and objects from all creative phases, the volume presents a comprehensive picture of Feininger’s work which is also examined for its topicality. Lines of development and subjects which characterised his work are discussed in detail by means of key works in contributions by international authors. In particular his early paintings are evaluated, alongside the latest research into the significance of photography in the creative work of the Bauhaus artist.
