Lyonel Feininger: Photographs
May 19, 2012
Laura Muir, Assistant Curator of the Busch-Reisinger Museum, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art, Harvard Art Museums
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.
Free with the price of admission. Admission is free to MA residents with valid ID on Saturdays before noon.
Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
