Elegant sailing ships, expansive seascapes, crystal-clear panoramas of cityscapes—with his unique pictorial language and range of subjects, Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956) became one of the most important artists of classic modernism, and his works remain popular to this day. This volume brilliantly showcases Feininger’s artistic development from his early works to his last paintings. We follow Feininger from Paris in the 1900s, when he abandoned his successful career as a caricaturist to pursue fine art, to his early paintings peopled with grotesque, wild, risqué figures inspired by the streets of Paris, to his discovery of the geometric pictorial style for which he would become famous. Featuring photographs and extracts from the unpublished diary of his wife Julia, this artist monograph provides in-depth insight into the life and work of an iconic modernist artist.
