Kin-Der-Kids 2

- The Whitney Museum is currently hosting a show of artwork by Lionel Feininger. To have some connection with the show, I thought it’d be a good time to post some more of the Kin-Der-Kids comic strip that he’d done in 1906. Bill Peckmann had sent more pages. I hope you enjoy this artist’s work; it was a daring comic strip for the time.

    One of that things that always pleases me is being reminded of how much the Fantastic/Fantastical Stuff was dabbled with back in early comic strips.

    I guess it also showed up around that time and slightly before in literature with Lewis Carroll’s books and those of other novelists. And, I guess there is that Trip to the Moon film and other silent movies, too.

    But, to see hand drawn Fantastical stuff from back then in four-colors or like McCay’s “Rarebit Fiends” short is …yowza!

    Thanks for sharing these.

    “Le Tableau” by Jean François Laguionie is as close to what I imagine a film by Lionel Feininger might look like although the subject matter is more grounded and easily assessable. The comic strip “The Kin-der-kids” raises a lot of questions for me like who is Mysterious Pete? And what about that wind-up toy Japansky? What the heck is it? All and all I love Feininger for his design and the mystery his strip has conjured up.
