Heeey Bonita, thanks so much for the pix!!!

Ill post now some sketches/paintings from a church that Lionel Feininger has drawn/painted from the church in Gelmeroda (a suburb of Weimar, about 15 min drive from here)

Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956)

At the beginning of his career before he became a famous painter and Bauhaus teacher, Lyonel Feininger earned his money for many years with drawings for newspapers and journals. In 1906, Lyonel Feininger published one of the first comic strips titled "The Kin-der-Kids" in the Chicago Tribune. On the cover he is announced as "The Famous German Artist" - that's quite astonishing, because Lyonel Feininger is born in the U.S.A. and has ever been an American citizen - although he has lived for nearly 50 years in Germany.
http://www.geocities.com/Eureka/Boar...85/artgal3.htm

Gelmeroda
The church of Gelmeroda, a little town near Weimar, was for many years a preferred theme for Lyonel Feininger since he first recognized it in 1906.
Between 1913 and 1936 he made 13 paintings of which 10 were finished and are still existing.
Gelmeroda V and VI only exist as drawings and Gelmeroda X was destroyed unfinished.

"Gelmeroda II"(1913)

"Gelmeroda IV" (1915)

"Gelmeroda VI" (1916)
"Gelmeroda VII"


continued....

No problem, LaBlanca.

We may yet "grow" this thread to include contemporary German artists, no?

With Kandinsky as one of my favourite painters, Der blaue Reiter certainly is one of my favourite art movements.

Excellent thread Bonita!

Not their fault, of course, but so much ugly institutional/housing project architecture was 'inspired' by Bauhaus in the US.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

Heather, David Hemming had beautiful hands that reminded me of Picasso's blue period figures.

Regarding Bauhaus architecture in America. It is unfortunate that what used to be a style that, to quote Walter Gropius, "refuses to live by repeating the forms and ornaments of our ancestors" is now the symbol of institution and oppression. It's very similar to the good-intentioned Minimalists whose styles were aped by corporations such as DKNY, Prada, the Gap ... Is this a natural evolution of all inventions and movements?

I am always amazed by how things changed over a long period of time. What this thread has shown are some of the original concepts, before it all turned sour.

Excellent thread Bonita!
Glad you like it, Geert.

When someone was talking about "living in the real world" in the other thread, I thought of Kandinsky's writing:

"Abstract art places a new world, which on the surface has nothing to do with 'reality,' next to the 'real' world." - Wassily Kandinsky



Here are more Kandinsky images, from the Guggenheim Museum's collection -


Sketch for Composition II (Skizze für Komposition II), 1909–10. Oil on canvas, 38 3/8 x 51 5/8 inches.



White Cross (Weisses Kreuz), January–June 1922. Oil on canvas,
100.5 x 110.6 cm.


"Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul." - Wassily Kandinsky



Several Circles (Einige Kreise), January–February 1926. Oil on canvas,
55 1/4 x 55 3/8 inches.



Taut Line (Gespannte Linie), July 1931. Watercolor and India ink on paper,
18 7/8 x 10 3/16 inches.

I was thinking of doing an animation with he, Monica Vitta, Alain Delon, Terrence Stamp and Vanessa Redgrave just to make a point that they had better looking movie stars back then...no-one is that good looking today (well maybe Pogo, but that's it ). I blame the 70s!

I always wondered how anyone who lived in the ugly-ass "Model City" of Parkmerced (next to SFSU) didn't just jump out a window after a while. It looks like the freaking Pink Palace or Geneva Towers, the difference being that people pay to live in Parkmerced. I don't know if you ever saw the Student Union bldg at State; we used to refer to it as "The Stockholm Meets the Andrea Doria." Ugly. :thmbdown:

Bauhaus Weimar

since Bauhaus was founded in my hometown, Weimar, I wanna take you on a lil tour and show you some of the original bauhaus-buildings and details:

House "Am Horn"










bauhaus-university main building (by Van de Velde, 1904-05)














the university was founded as an art school, this building "Van de Velde Bau (building)" (1904-05) and part of the university still hosts the art & design section.

Since Bauhaus is not only directed towards architecture but also combined other arts, some artists of the Blue Rider like Kandinski the founder and Klee of the Blue Rider are strongly connected with Weimar and Bauhaus.

it's true that Kandinsky taught at the Bauhaus, but iirc never was involved with more than painting
