Lyonel Feininger

Lyonel Feininger (1871 - 1956), an American painter born of German-American parents, trained and lived in Germany for many years.

Feininger taught at the Bauhaus for several years. He returned to America in 1936 after his work was exhibited in the 'degenerate art' (Entartete Kunst) by the Nazis, but before the 1937 exhibition in Munich.

Feininger was one of the very few fine artists also to draw comic strips as a cartoonist. His strips, Kinder Kids[?] and Wee Willie Winkie's World[?] were noted for their fey humor and graphic experimentation.
