Lyonel Feininger Paintings


Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956) was a German-American artist who originally traveled from New York to Germany to study music, however, he changed his mind and began to pursue art instead. He studied under the artist Ernst Hancke and eventually started working as a cartoonist. At age 36, he finally made the transition over to fine art where he became involved with the Expressionist movement. He was inspired by Cubism and mixed this style with his Expressionist works to create something uniquely his. Feininger eventually moved back to America after the rise of the Nazi Party and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
