Andreas Feininger Wall Art

Andreas Feininger (Born 1906) combined an artist's love of sweeping vistas with an architect's love of space, precision, and technique. Although he was an American citizen, he never went to the US until he was 33 years old. He was born in Paris to the late acclaimed artist Lyonel Feininger. He graduated with a degree in architecture with highest honors. At the time he was studying, he was using a camera as a reference aid in creating his building designs - the camera was his mechanical sketchbook. In the depressed economy, commissions were scarce for non-European citizens. So after working for architect Le Corbusier in France for a year, followed his struggle to find employment in Stockholm, Feininger decided to embark on photography full time. He sold his first photos in 1932, and then moved to the United States with his family in 1939, and in 1943 he became a staff photographer for LIFE magazine where he worked for 20 years and completed more than 430 assignments.

Full of angles of geometric perfection, broad swaths of road, and towering skyscrapers, Feininger's works are masterpieces in their panoramic grandeur and technical excellence. A full body of available Feininger’s modern prints has been represented by GALLERY M since 1996. Through the artist’s trained eye, the intricacies and beauty of both the man-made and natural world were intensified and magnified. Feininger's images revealed a new aesthetic of geometric perfection and order. His photographs are in many important collections including: The Baltimore Museum of Art, Victorian and Albert Museum of Art, London, the Museum of the City of New York, The New York Historical Society, The Museum of Modern Art, New York City, etc.
