About the Object

Born in America, Lyonel Feininger spent much of his adult life living and painting in Germany.  He developed his own personal style of Cubism in which splinters of form and space are rhythmic and interlocking.  At the time the Nazis took over the German government and its cultural properties in the 1930s, the National Museum of Halle owned Zirchow VI.  The Nazi campaign against abstract art, labeled "degenerate," led to the sale of the museum's collection of modern paintings including Zirchow VI.
