Essay
"In the woodcut technique Feininger found a most responsive and flexible medium, one uniquely and completely suited to his needs and temperament; it allowed him to move to a new freedom of expression and to attain a highly personal style with which he reached full maturity. To him it was the most simple and most direct of all graphic techniques." (Leona E. Prasse, Lyonel Feininger. A Definitive Catalog of his Graphic Work [..], Berlin 1972, p. 31).
