Item description for Years of Friendship, 1944-1956: The Correspondence of Lyonel Feininger and Mark Tobey by Achim Moeller Lyonel Feininger...
This expanded and updated edition of an in-demand, out-of-print title includes over 80 letters written between artists Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) and Mark Tobey (1890-1976), from the time of their first meeting in 1944 to Feininger's death in 1956. An essay by Peter Selz, entitled "Parallel Visions," offers an introduction to the artists' friendship, and a chronology further clarifies their intersecting lives. Two brief reciprocal catalogue essays--one by Feininger about Tobey, and one by Tobey about Feininger--conclude the volume. Several paintings discussed in the letters are reproduced as color plates, along with a selection of the letters themselves.

Reviews - What do customers think about Years of Friendship, 1944-1956: The Correspondence of Lyonel Feininger and Mark Tobey?
From the artists view Feb 23, 2008
An insightful view from the artists themselves. Interesting perspective on galleries, other artists and shared frustrations regarding the community as a whole. Highly recommended for anyone who wants more than an academic or critical opinion of the art scene.
A pleasure for anything in print about Mark Tobey. Feb 9, 2007
I am a big fan of Mark Tobey (especially). Reading the correspondence lets one "get in on" the spirit of two artists at work. I wish the color reproductions were presented throughout the text instead of at the end pages. I don't know whether I would call this book "great" for a library, but I am pleased it opens a window on the artists' relationship and personal visions.
