Lyonel Feininger(American, 1871-1956)
“I love how Feininger sharpens my perception of the intensity of the storm with waves, clouds, ship smoke, and the ship itself broken into angular shards. This non-fluid geometry remarkably conveys the vessel's struggle for forward motion against the repeated lift and drop of waves and crush of water surging across its decks. ”
Scott Boberg, Head of Interpretive Programs
