The Lyonel Feininger Project Puts panOpticon to Good Use

The Lyonel Feininger Project LLC, established in 1985 by Achim Moeller, is in the process of preparing the Catalogue Raisonné of Paintings by Lyonel Feininger (1871–1956). The completed catalogue will be made available online in 2016 on the occasion of the 145th anniversary of the artist’s birth and the 60th anniversary of his death. With its in-depth provenance, literature and exhibition information, the Catalogue Raisonné will provide an extensive resource on the life and work of Lyonel Feininger.

The Lyonel Feininger Project also maintains the archive of watercolors, drawings, and prints by the artist. All works determined to be authentic are certified and recorded with individual numbers in the archive.

For more information on the Catalogue Raisonné, or to submit works for authentication, please visit The Lyonel Feininger Project website at or contact Achim Moeller, Editor of the Catalogue Raisonné and Managing Principal of The Lyonel Feininger Project, or Sebastian Ehlert, Project Manager, at All information will be kept strictly confidential.

We at panOpticon are pleased that the Lyonel Feininger Project chose our innovative content management system for this most important undertaking.
