The Bauhaus Master Lyonel Feininger (1871 – 1956) left Germany in 1937 and returned to the USA. Around 1940, he began to work on compositions of the urban canyons of New York – the most important work complex of his later oeuvre, which is defined by linearity and pictorial resolution. The American opus is little known in Germany, and it is now being extensively acknowledged for the first time.
