Lyonel Feininger: "Silvery Stars" (1924)

A cubist creation with sky storming cathedrals and silvery stars on a mystical green background. Original: Oil on canvas, private collection.

 

This limited masterpiece of Feininger was made using an exquisite collotype technique. This very rare and over 140-year old technique allows to reproduce genuine halftones, i.e. to create them fully, not as grid dots of the base colors. The precious sheets prove highest artistic sensitivity. The result consists of colors true to the original, cherished by art connoisseurs and doing justice to the delicate colorfulness of Feininger's works.

 

Nine colors on collotype cardboard, limited edition, 1000 exemplars. In exquisite solid wood framing with bevel cut passe-partout, dustproof glazed. Format 60 x 72 cm.
