Catalogue Note

In the 1920s and 30s Feininger would often spend his summers away from the city, resting and spending time sketching in nature - something which bought him enormous pleasure. Having returned to New York years later he wrote 'what I really miss is drawing from nature and making notes, for instance by the Baltic Sea, in Deep, or in the Villages surrounding Weimar'. (Feininger to Lux Feininger, cited in: Wolgang Buche, "Zurück in New York - Zurück in einer vertrauten Fremde" in: Exh. Cat., Halle, Stiftung Moritzburg, Kunstmuseum des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt, Lyonel Feininger. Züruck in Amerika. 1937 - 1956, May - August 2009, p.154)
