Lyonel Feininger – 1871-1956. Born in New York to German-American violinist and composer Karl Feininger and American singer Elizabeth Feininger.

Travelling to Germany in 1887 at age 16 to study at the Königliche Akademie Berlin under Ernst Hancke. Feininger’s early career was as a successful commercial caricaturist, but by age 36 he worked more in the fashion of a fine artist.

A member of the Berliner Sezession in 1909, associated with German expressionist groups – Die Brücke, the Novembergruppe, Gruppe 1919, the Blaue Reiter circle and Die Blaue Vier (The Blue Four).
His first solo exhibit was at Sturm Gallery in Berlin, 1917. Not long after in 1919 when Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus Art Institute, Lyonel became his first faculty appointment.

He remained associated with Bauhaus for several years, becoming the master artist in charge of the Bauhaus printmaking workshop along with teaching roles. In 1933, the political situation became unbearable for Feininger and his wife. They eventually relocated to America after much of his & associates works were confiscated in 1936 to be exhibited in the ‘degenerate art’ (Entartete Kunst) exhibit Munich 1937.
