German-American painter Lyonel Feininger, a leading exponent of Expressionism.
Lyonel Charles Adrian Feininger was a German-American painter, graphic artist, and caricaturist who lived from July 17, 1871 – January 13, 1956. He was one of the most important representatives of the Expressionism.
Before Lyonel Feininger started to work as a fine artist, he has worked as a caricaturist for countless German, French, and American magazines and newspapers. Influenced by his caricatures, Feininger quickly developed a distinctive style of painting, which was based on graphically abstracted and artistically exaggerated objects. This distinctive expressiveness in his paintings has inspired numerous contemporary artists. Today many of his paintings are collected in both public and private collections.
