The German-American artist Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956) is a classic name in modern art. The SCHIRN is dedicating the first major retrospective in Germany in over twenty-five years to this important painter and graphic artist, portraying a comprehensive and surprising overview of his creative work. Feininger is famous for his paintings of buildings, crystalline architectures in unmistakable monumentality, and harmonious colors. However, today’s approach often overlooks the originality and wealth of artistic facets in his oeuvre, which reflects many aspects of modernism. The SCHIRN presents main works which are seldom on view and also little-known series like the artist’s recently rediscovered photographs.
