Feininger loved to cycle around the villages near his home and studio, and Gelmeroda, a small village near Weimar with its wooden church became a favourite motif. Feininger first drew the church in 1906, going on to produce numerous prints and thirteen paintings dating from 1913-1936. The architectural form of the spire became a perfect distillation of Feininger’s fascination with geometric composition, fusing cubism and expressionism to produce works of compelling visual power.
