Neudruck der Griffelkunst 1978.
Feininger (1887-1950) was an American painter and engraver of German origin. World renown, he almost completely turned away from figurative elements in his artworks whose main theme became the city and the architecture of Thuringian villages. His compositions from after the war often feature a high church steeple, as a symbol of hope for a more peaceful world. Faithful to Cubist precepts, he denied any classic perspective and recomposed it from deconstructed elements, shapes nestled within each other in a complicated way that gives the work an inner monumentality.
Walter Gropius invited him at the Bauhaus, where he gave classes from 1919 to 1933, when the school closed under pressure of the Nazi regime. His expressionist woodcut is a perfect example of its type.
This work is emblematic of the work of Feininger. It is in perfect condition.
