almost without interruption. Initially working as a caricaturist, he began in 1907 to create architectural and landscape paintings in a very personal style similar to cubism. Feininger was a master of the Bauhaus and particularly fond of Weimar and numerous Thuoringian villages. Some 120 of his works alone are of the church of Gelmeroda. Outlawed by the Nazis, he returned to the U.S. and, beginning in 1939, painted his series Skyscrapers of Manhattan. In 1947 he became the president of the Federation of American Painters and Sculptors. (M 26766)
