Lyonel Feininger, one of the most celebrated painters in Germany in the 1920s, discovered in photography a new means of energizing and advancing his artistic program. In this lecture, Laura Muir, assistant curator, Harvard Art Museums/Busch-Reisinger Museum, explores Feininger's photography at the Bauhaus, its development over the next decade, and the surprisingly influential role it played in his artistic life. Complements the exhibition Lyonel Feininger: Photographs, 1928–1939.
