26 February - 15 May 2011. A retrospective exhibition of 77 watercolours and drawings by the German-American painter and draughtsman, Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956). Presented in conjunction with the Harvard Art Museum and Massachusett's Busch-Reisinger museum, the exhibition offers an overview of Feininger's artistic development from his early career through to his time in the Bauhaus movement and his subsequent years living in the USA.
As a leading figure of high modernist art, the nazis declared his work 'degenerate art' after which he fled to New York, where he spent the rest of his life. The Kulturforum displays a parallel show of 76 of Feininger's photographs.
Tues-Fri 10.00-18.00. Thurs 10.00-22.00. Sat-Sun 11.00-18.00.
