Mostly known as a painter, Lyonel Feininger was on faculty at the Bauhaus, a unique, interdisciplinary school of art in Germany. "Working alone and often at night, he created expressive, introspective, otherworldly images that have little in common with the playful student photography more typically associated with the school." Lyonel Feininger: Photographs, 1928-1939 was his first U.S. Exhibition.
