In the Lyonel Feininger Gallery, the museum for graphic arts in Quedlinburg, there are two special photo albums by Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956) from the early 1930s from the estate of Hermann Klumpp, the museum’s founder: one documents a trip to the Baltic Sea and the other was compiled when Lyonel and his wife, Julia Feininger (1880–1970), were leaving Dessau. The photographs illustrate Feininger’s passion for photography, a facet of the Bauhaus master and painter’s creative work that is still underappreciated.
