Description
Feininger based this painting on his sketches of the small German village of Markwippach, where he frequently hiked through the countryside. The composition weds intense, expressionist color with the flattened, fragmented planes of Cubism to create a dynamic, imaginary view of the village revolving around a church. Painted during World War I, and suggesting a village both destroyed and reconstructed, Feininger conveys the utopian desire of the German Expressionists to remake the world.
