Press Release

The Directors of Moeller Fine Art, New York are pleased to announce the acquisition of watercolors, drawings and prints by Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) that have recently been returned from Quedlinburg. The works are part of the group that the artist left in Germany before his return to America in 1937. Though Feininger lived in New York until his death in 1956, these works have until now remained in Quedlinburg. Numerous prints are unique artist's proofs, and nearly all the works are being exhibited for the first time. They reflect the varied aspects of the artist's talent at a pivotal moment in his career, and highlight the alternately whimsical, cubist, and prismatic elements for which he is celebrated.
