Feininger (1887-1950) was an American painter and engraver of German origin. World-renowned, he almost completely turned away from figurative elements in his works whose main theme became the city and the architecture of Thuringian villages. A high church tower is often present in the compositions that date after the war, as a symbol of hope for a more peaceful world. He was faithful to Cubist precepts and denied any classic perspective, recomposing it from unstructured elements, shapes nestled within each other in a complicated way that gives the work an inner monumentality and strict tectonics.
Walter Gropius invited him to Bauhaus where he taught from 1919 until 1933, the year the school was forced to close under the pressure of the nazi regime. He was a master/teacher responsible for the printing studio. His expressionist wood engraving is a model for the genre.
