"…he hardly made a photo that isn't touched by a graceful angle or doesn't sensitively capture some diffuse light." (Sanford Schwartz The New York Review of Books)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This volume contains family and holiday photographs of the young Feiningers, pre-exile from Germany, at their holiday home in Poland, as
well as evocative urban and landscape photographs not unlike the light-shafted angles of Lyonel's paintings. His younger son, Andreas, became a well-known photographer
in the United States and is seen here as a lad.

Format: Hardcover
For those unfamiliar with the art of Lyonel Feininger (1871 - 1956), he was a `German-American painter, and a leading exponent of Expressionism. He also worked as a caricaturist and comic strip artist. The artist is represented with drawings at the exhibitions of the annual Berlin Secession in the years 1901 through 1903. Feininger's career as cartoonist started in 1894. He was working for several German, French and American magazines. In February 1906, when a quarter of Chicago's population was of German descent, James Keeley, editor of The Chicago Tribune traveled to Germany to procure the services of the most popular humor artists. He recruited Feininger to illustrate two comic strips "The Kin-der-Kids" and "Wee Willie Winkie's World" for the Chicago Tribune. The strips were noted for their fey humor and graphic experimentation. He also worked as a commercial caricaturist for 20 years for various newspapers and magazines in both the USA and Germany. Later, Art Spiegelman wrote in The New York Times Book Review, that Feininger's comics have "achieved a breathtaking formal grace unsurpassed in the history of the medium." `

But important as that information may be to fully appreciate the gifts of this man, this book of his photographs unveils a little known aspect of his output. These images, limited to the years form 1928 to 1939, are indeed another form of Expressionism. For one new to a field Feininger found his niche in playing with light, using unfocused areas of buildings and landscapes and even the human face to accentuate an almost otherworldly atmosphere.
