- Feininger, Lyonel Charles Adrian 1871-1956. American-born artist who was influenced by cubism and the Bauhaus movement and developed a delicate geometric style with intersecting planes of translucent colors.
“The absence of human agents reflects what can only be described as Feininger's longing for stability which he allegedly found, at least in part, when summering in Deep.”
“But even by then, critics like Clement Greenberg were promoting Abstract Expressionism over figurative modernism, and Feininger began his fadeout.”
“Despite his yearnings for his home country, family and success caused Feininger to stay in Germany until the Nazi assault on modernist art forced him to flee in 1937, with $2 in his pocket.”
“This picture, along with others in this gallery, harks back to Feininger's work as an illustrator, samples of which are on view in an adjacent room.”
“The exhibition, curated by Barbara Haskell with Sasha Nicholas, introduces Feininger with his early paintings; they are figurative, whimsical, often humorous depictions of life in German villages in the early 1900s, rendered in brilliant, often unnatural colors.”
“Lyonel Feininger Family, LLC/ARS Feininger's 'Carnival in Arcueil' 1911 When he died 55 years ago, Feininger was heralded as a pioneer of American modernism.”
“Once he left Europe and settled in Manhattan, Feininger's works grew sparer still, though more fluid—images of his new city rendered in a looser style, minus the depth.”
“A month before he turned 66, Feininger started all over again in the U.S.”
“During these years, Feininger also took up photography, using lighting effects to produce lovely atmospheric works.”
“The yellow houses in "Carnival" are just a few steps away from these beginnings, and in the paintings that follow, Feininger's style grows more distinctive and more experimental.”
