    Best-known as a painter and printmaker, the American-born modernist Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956) also produced a little-known body of photographic work that makes innovative use of reflections, transparency, and light and shadow. This gallery talk will consider the origins of Feininger’s photography at the Bauhaus and its development over the next decade when he was experimenting with avant-garde techniques. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Lyonel Feininger: Photographs, 1928–1939.
