In-Sight Evenings: Looking Deeper and Differently: Lyonel Feininger: Photographs
May 2, 2012
Laura Muir, Assistant Curator of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art
American-born modernist Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956) is most closely identified with his luminous prismatic paintings of medieval German towns and churches, but he was also a gifted and surprisingly innovative photographer. This lecture will explore Harvard’s extensive holdings of the artist’s little-known photographic work.
This popular series of special evenings features talks by curators, after-hours viewing of the galleries, live music, conversation, and refreshments. Enjoy all the Art Museums have to offer!
This lecture is made possible in part by generous support from the Emily Rauh Pulitzer and Joseph Pulitzer Jr. Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museums.
