Lyonel Feininger: Painting ‘Blue Marine’ (1924) in the frame

The blue color as the color of the sea and the sky demonstrates Feininger’s turning to the nautical and the marine. The historic photo shows the artist with a sketch pad working on the Baltic Sea shore. Probably this is a ship that comes from the open sea into the night bay. It comes from the wall-like mist or the fog. The lamp lights the crowd that is waiting on the quay for the promenade. Or perhaps they are just enjoying the night air?_x000D_

Lyonel Feininger is known for its Cubism and the art of Robert Delaunay's excited road, cities and ship representations that are made of prismatic broken forms.

The painter and graphic artist was born in 1871 in New York, son of German musicians. At the age of 16 he had joined his parents at a concert tour for the first time in Germany and remained there to study applied arts at Hamburg school and later at the Royal Academy in Berlin. After studying in Paris, he lived and worked for many years in Germany, where he was close to the artist group "Blue Rider" and since 1919 coined as master for the graphic arts workshops, at "Bauhaus" in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin.

Feininger, carried out most clearly in addition to Schlemmer, the fine ideal of the Bauhaus. For him, the starting point is not the human figure, but the architecture, the strict geometric design of the forms, that he witnessed in the Gothic style churches. His studies of German town’s architecture justified his light-flooded, prismatic style that should be a model for many.

Feininger first focused on German urban landscapes and churches. In the time of National Socialism Feininger's works were officially classified as "degenerate", which led him to return to New York City in 1937. There, he create his famous impressions of the architecture of Manhattan and New York City.

Modern art movement. The term comes from the Latin word cubus = cube. The Cubists were inspired by a statement made by Paul Cézanne accoording to which the reality could be reduced to the cube, cone and ball. In terms of presentation they focused on the various perspectives of the image object.

Masters of Cubism are Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger. Alexander Archipenko is a sculptor among the Cubists.
