Lyonel Feininger: WoodcutsLyonel Feininger: Woodcuts

Becoming a Bauhaus Artist

Published by Kerber.
Edited with text by Bjrn Egging.

One of the twentieth century's great virtuosos in woodcut, Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) created his oeuvre in this medium--some 320 works--in a period of just a few years, from the spring of 1918, when he was living in Paris, to the winter of 1920, by which time he had begun teaching at the Bauhaus. Where Feininger's etchings and lithographs never developed a particularly distinct formal idiom, his woodcuts easily rival his oil paintings and drawings. At once economical and expressionistic, they include nearly abstract depictions of cityscapes (many of them Paris) and townscapes, coastlines, ships and maritime scenes, cathedrals and churches, all realized with a rare combination of precision and effervescence. This handsomely designed book examines, for the first time ever, the complete range of Feininger's woodcuts, evaluating them in the context of his complete oeuvre of paintings, watercolors and drawings.

Lyonel Feininger: Drawings and WatercolorsLyonel Feininger: Drawings and Watercolors

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Peter Nisbet.

The German-American artist, photographer, illustrator and teacher Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) was one of the modernist era's true world citizens, allied with the Berlin Secession, Die Brcke, the Blaue Reiter and the Bauhaus. The Busch-Reisinger Museum, home to the Lyonel Feininger Archive, recently received a bequest of more than 400 Feininger drawings and watercolors from the estate of curator and collector William S. Lieberman, most of which have never before been published. Lieberman appears to have made a point of acquiring Feininger's more intimate and personal works (as opposed to, say, the murals for which he is so well known), and such works constitute the bulk of this volume. Essayist Peter Nisbet provides entries on individual works, offers perspective on Feininger's reception in the United States in the decades after his return from Germany in 1937 and suggests directions for an overdue reassessment of his oeuvre.

Lyonel Feininger: Photographs 1928-1939Lyonel Feininger: Photographs 1928-1939

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Laura Muir, Nathan J. Timpano.

Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) was 58 years old when he took up photography. He had been a professor at the Bauhaus for almost a decade, and had enjoyed widespread success as a comic artist and painter. Ever open to new pursuits, and inspired by the works of his photographer sons Lux and Andreas and the experimental photography of his Dessau neighbor Lszl Moholy-Nagy, Feininger took up the camera in 1928 and began to explore a variety of avant-garde techniques. This painter of crystalline architectures and landscapes left a legacy of fascinating unsettling images of shop window mannequins and reflections, nocturnal photographs using double exposures and other works. This is the first publication devoted to this little-known body of work. Examining about 70 original prints, it also relates Feininger's photography to the rest of his extensive oeuvre.

Years of Friendship, 1944-1956: The Correspondence of Lyonel Feininger and Mark TobeyYears of Friendship, 1944-1956: The Correspondence of Lyonel Feininger and Mark Tobey

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essay by Peter Selz.

This expanded and updated edition of an in-demand, out-of-print title includes over 80 letters written between artists Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) and Mark Tobey (1890-1976), from the time of their first meeting in 1944 to Feininger's death in 1956. An essay by Peter Selz, entitled "Parallel Visions," offers an introduction to the artists' friendship, and a chronology further clarifies their intersecting lives. Two brief reciprocal catalogue essays--one by Feininger about Tobey, and one by Tobey about Feininger--conclude the volume. Several paintings discussed in the letters are reproduced as color plates, along with a selection of the letters themselves.
