Lyonel Feininger, an artist linked to Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), evolved gradually towards faceting and formal construction under the influence of the Cubist and Orphist works of Léger, Delaunay, Metzinger, Gleizes and Le Fauconnier. Ships is one of the seventeen works Lyonel produced in 1917. His interest in marine themes, which had first arisen during his childhood and had grown as a result of his visits to the Baltic Sea during the war years, is combined with a formal and fragmented geometric language that attests to the artistic novelties he discovered during his years in Paris, particularly during his visit to the Salon des Indépendants of 1911. In 1917, when Lyonel Feininger painted the present work in the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, his situation as an American residing in Germany had been complicated by the United States’ joining the war. Despite these misgivings, his solo exhibition held at the end of the year in the Der Sturm gallery in Berlin was a success with both public and critics and marked the beginning of his rise to recognition.

Seven Luminist Seascapes to Make You Want a Beach Vacation

Cubism – the word instantly evokes images of Picasso and his figures with multiple noses. However, there is more than just Picasso who excels in this modern style. Lyonel Feininger is one such artist. His Sailboats from 1929 showcases the excitement of the Cubist style as well as the energy of the Jazz Age. It is almost as if Picasso decided to go boating. All aboard!

Lyonel Feininger sailboats: Lyonel Feininger, Sailboats, 1929, Detroit Institute of Arts, USA.

Lyonel Feininger was an American artist who lived and worked in Germany for most of his life. He was the first teacher at the famous Bauhaus School when it opened in 1919, and he taught alongside Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky . Feininger was a follower of Precisionism, a form of Cubism , which is sometimes referred to as Synthetic Cubism. Sailboats includes Cubist shapes but has a more romantic, colorful and decorative rendering. Feininger brought warmth into his pieces which contrasted with the more austere styles of other Bauhaus artists.

Lyonel Feininger studied in Paris prior to teaching at the Bauhaus School in Weimar. In France he met artist Robert Delaunay who probably influenced Feininger with his French Orphist ideas of vibrant colors, warm hues, and sharp lines. Feininger fused these Orphist characteristics with Cubist ideas of reduction, fragmentation, and geometric shapes.

Feininger’s style, as seen in Sailboats , is one of the instantly recognizable subjects, cut into sharply delineated planes of great slanted triangles. His planes are like triangular cut pieces of glass. They are sharp, precise, and transparent. This triangular fragmentation would later become Feininger’s signature style and would differentiate him from other followers of Precisionism/Synthetic Cubism.

Lyonel Feininger was the only faculty member to work at the Bauhaus School for its entire existence from 1919 to 1933. It closed soon after the Nazi party’s rise to power in Germany. Feininger’s paintings were declared inferior by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party, and he was even showcased in the infamous Degenerate Art Exhibition of 1937. Thankfully, Feininger had already returned to New York in 1936. Otherwise, we can only speculate on the horrors that may have happened to Feininger if he had remained in Nazi Germany.

Lyonel Feininger, Sailboats, 1929, Detroit Institute of Arts, USA. Enlarged Detail of Sail.

The Nazi art criticism was clearly unfounded and deranged. Lyonel Feininger’s Sailboats is now recognized as a tour de force of early 20th-century art. It has an invigorating feeling as both sky and sea break into diagonal shards of blue and white. The view is from a low perspective as if we are on a boat ourselves.

Sweeping lines emphasize the sails as the boats race forward. Are we witnessing a regatta? Are we participating in it? Regardless, we are certainly partaking in the beauty and energy of the moment. Lyonel Feininger’s Sailboats is a wonderful addition to the Detroit Institute of Arts . It is blissfully vibrant and buoyantly vivid. It is simply wonderful.

Sailing Boats - Lyonel Feininger

Sailing Boats is an oil painting created by Lyonel Feininger around 1929. It depicts two yachts sailing on the Baltic Sea against a minimal blue sky and sea. Feininger’s signature modern style of fusing Cubism and Futurism is evident in the simplified geometric forms, shallow perspective, and sense of motion. The work provides insight into Feininger’s aim to convey themes of a spiritual journey and transcendence through symbolic subjects rendered in progressive pictorial language.

Description of Sailing Boats

Sailing Boats is an oil painting created by Lyonel Feininger around 1929. It depicts two yachts sailing on the Baltic Sea against a minimal blue sky and sea. Feininger’s signature modern style of fusing Cubism and Futurism is evident in the simplified geometric forms, shallow perspective, and sense of motion. The work provides insight into Feininger’s aim to convey themes of a spiritual journey and transcendence through symbolic subjects rendered in progressive pictorial language. Feininger was associated with German Expressionism and the Bauhaus known for experimental works across media. His paintings combined Cubist and Futurist influences with spiritual and symbolic themes. Feininger developed a personal modern idiom through sharply angled forms and fragmented compositions evoking a sense of dynamism, otherworldliness, and mystic journey. Sailing Boats demonstrates Feininger’s ability to imbue the landscape with poetic and spiritual resonance through precise, prismatic geometry and the choice of yachts as symbolic vehicles for existential voyages. Two vessels with billowing sails traverse a sea reduced to elementary shapes and expanses of midnight blue. Feininger’s reductive palette and sharply defined outlines create a sense of graphic flatness interrupted only by masts and sails reaching upward into the void. His radical cropping and asymmetric composition convey glimpses of an infinite whole through fragments rendered as symbolic microcosms. The yachts appear alone yet guided by winds and governed stars, exploring realms of blue evoking Kleist’s poetic sea of ‘eternal freedom’. Other famous works by Feininger include Cathedral , Village II , and Osten . Associated with German Expressionism and the Bauhaus, Feininger’s paintings combined Cubism, Futurism, and mysticism. His works explored symbolic and spiritual themes through a personal modern idiom featuring geometric forms, shallow space, and a sense of dynamism. Feininger aimed to evoke poetic and existential ideas through the spiritual resonance of natural and architectural subjects. Sailing Boats highlights Feininger’s gift for imbuing landscape with allegorical depth and mystic potency. His painting shaped modern art’s spiritual turn through visions of transcendence seen in symbolic journeys into the unknown. Feininger gave form to hopes of purpose through confrontation with infinities we cannot escape, nor ever truly dread. His works explore life’s meaning on a sea of blue where guidance comes alone from stars and one’s sails full-blown, in realms of freedom boundless as the sky.

About the Artist:

Vasily Kandinsky was born on December 4, 1866, in Moscow. From 1886 through 1892 he studied law and economics at the University of Moscow, where he lectured after graduation. In 1896 he declined a teaching position in order to study art in Munich with Anton Azbe from 1897 to 1899 and at the Kunstakademie with Franz von Stuck in 1900. Kandinsky taught in 190103 at the art school of the Phalanx, a group he cofounded in Munich. One of his students, Gabriele Mnter, would be his companion until 1914. In 1902 Kandinsky exhibited for the first time with the Berlin Secession and produced his first woodcuts. In 1903 and 1904 he began his travels in Italy, the Netherlands, and North Africa and his visits to Russia. He showed at the Salon dAutomne in Paris from 1904.

In 1909 Kandinsky was elected president of the newly founded Neue Knstlervereinigung Mnchen (NKVM). The groups first show took place at Heinrich Thannhausers Moderne Galerie in Munich in 1909. In 1911 Kandinsky and Franz Marc began to make plans for Der Blaue Reiter Almanac, although the publication would not appear until the following year. Kandinskys On the Spiritual in Art was published in December 1911. He and Marc withdrew from the NKVM in that month, and shortly thereafter the Blaue Reiter groups first exhibition was held at the Moderne Galerie. In 1912 the second Blaue Reiter show was held at the Galerie Hans Goltz, Munich. Kandinskys first solo show was held at Der Sturm gallery in Berlin in 1912. In 1913 one of his works was included in the Armory Show in New York and the Erste deutsche Herbstsalon at the Der Sturm gallery in Berlin. Kandinsky lived in Russia from 1914 to 1921, principally in Moscow, where he held a position at the Peoples Commissariat of Education.

Kandinsky began teaching at the Bauhaus in Weimar in 1922. In 1923 he was given his first solo show in New York by the Socit Anonyme, of which he became vice-president. Lyonel Feininger, Alexej Jawlensky, Kandinsky, and Paul Klee made up the Blaue Vier (Blue Four) group, formed in 1924. He moved with the Bauhaus to Dessau in 1925 and became a German citizen in 1928. The Nazi government closed the Bauhaus in 1933 and later that year Kandinsky settled in Neuilly-sur-Seine, near Paris; he acquired French citizenship in 1939. Fifty-seven of his works were confiscated by the Nazis in the 1937 purge of degenerate art. Kandinsky died on December 13, 1944, in Neuilly.
