The Blue Rider in the Lenbachhaus Munich

Overview

Overview

In 1911 a group of young renegades seceded from Munich's established art society to protest against a jury's rejection of one of Kandinsky's works. Headed by Kandinsky and Marc, these artists organized their own exhibitions and published an almanac, both of which they called The Blue Rider. Although the group that was formed was short-lived, its elan has proved to be of lasting influence on twentieth-century art. In its preoccupation with abstraction, the forces and laws of nature, "primitive" art, and the role of color, the work of the Blue Rider artists revolved around many concerns central to the birth of Modernism.

Long acknowledged as a standard work on the period, this beautifully illustrated, revised and updated volume includes masterpieces by Vassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Gabriele Munter, Alexei Jawlensky, August Macke, and Paul Klee, taken from all periods of the artists' oeuvres An introductory essay by the Director of the Lenbachhaus, together with biographies of the artists, full-color reproductions, and plate-by-plate commentaries make The Blue Rider an invaluable introduction to a major landmark in the history of twentieth-century art.
