German-American, 1871–1956

Though originally from New York, Lyonel Feininger spent a great deal of his career in Germany and is closely associated with the German Expressionist movement as well as the Bauhaus, where he was an active teacher and practitioner. Early Cubism and Futurism acted as significant sources of inspiration in the development of Feininger’s personal style, characterized by angular lines and transparent intersecting planes. When the Bauhaus was dissolved by the Nazi party in the late 1930s, Feininger returned to his native New York, adding a series of skylines and seascapes to his already prolific body of work.
