Kandinsky, Marc, and Der Blaue Reiter


A re-encounter with fascinating key works of modernism, set in the context of the almanac, Der Blaue Reiter


ISBN: 9783775741699 Category:


For just a few years at the beginning of the twentieth century, Munich was the “hot spot” of Germany’s artistic avant-garde. Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc’s initiative as founding editors of the almanac Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) was a stroke of luck for the arts. The journal and exhibition of the same name made international waves when they heralded the start of the modern era in Germany before the First World War. Since then, the names of the movement’s key players Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter, Alexej von Jawlensky, August Macke et al., signal an essential chapter in the international history of art marked by the transition of painting into a vibrant, colorful and transcendental form of abstraction. This beautiful publication that dedicates itself to this topic will show a revolutionary re-valuation of the arts in an open Europe.
