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