As the internationally recognized authority on the life and work of Lyonel Feininger, Achim Moeller is regularly called upon to advise public institutions on major exhibitions. He has acted as a special consultant for a number of retrospectives including “Lyonel Feininger: At the Edge of the World” organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and “Lyonel Feininger: Von Gelmeroda nach Manhattan,” at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin and the Haus der Kunst, Munich.

Achim Moeller is currently compiling the three-volume Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings by Lyonel Feininger. The first volume, comprising the years 1907-1918, is planned for completion in 2014. Volumes II (1919-1936) and III (1937-1956) are scheduled to be published thereafter. The Catalogue Raisonné will be the first update and extension to the list of paintings compiled by Lyonel Feininger’s wife, Julia, and published in Hans Hess’ book on Lyonel Feininger in 1959. With its in-depth provenance, literature and exhibition information the Catalogue Raisonné will provide a definitive compendium on the life and work of Lyonel Feininger.
