"Lyonel Charles Feininger (July 17, 1871 – January 13, 1956) was a German-American painter and caricaturist."

"Feininger only started working as an artist at the age of 36, after having worked as a commercial caricaturist for twenty years for various newspapers and magazines in both the USA and Germany; he was a member of the Berliner Sezession in 1909, was associated with expressionist group Die Brücke, the Novembergruppe, Gruppe 1919, the Blaue Reiter circle and The Blue Four. Famously, he designed the cover for the Bauhaus 1919 manifesto: an expressionist woodcut 'cathedral'. He also taught at the Bauhaus for several years." - Wikipedia

Han är ganska mager om bena, tillika om armar och hals.

"I helvetet finns ingen bandyplan
Han gillar inte bandy, fan
det har jag hört dom vitsat mä'
men det är synd om djävlarne.
Tänk om dom fick spela bandy!
Tänk om på stora Djävulsgatan
dom spelade för gubben satan
Det laget är nog bäst att utur räkningen
man tar
Där spela alla som små djävlar!"
