Beschrijving The Blue Rider in the Lenbachhaus, Munich

Collectiecatalogus met een overzicht van de aquarellen, tekeningen en grafiek van de groep expressionistische schilders Der Blaue Reiter onder leiding van Wassily Kandinsky, August Macke en Alexej Jawlensky uit de verzameling van het gelijknamige museum. - Published to coincide with the reopening of the Lenbachhaus after a glorious new redesign and expansion, this book explores the highly influential Blue Rider group. A private historic villa that was transformed into one of Munich's most beloved museums, the Lenbachhaus has reopened with a redesign by the renowned architect Norman Foster. Published to help celebrate the museum's reopening, this book offers a fresh perspective on the Lenbachhaus's most popular holdings: the works of the Blue Rider group, of which the Lenbachhaus owns the largest collection worldwide. One of modern art's most influential forces, the Blue Rider movement was founded by a group of artists including Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej Jawlensky, Marianne von Werefkin, Franz Marc, August Macke, and Gabriele Münter. Although styles and aims varied from artist to artist, the group shared a common desire to express spiritual truths through their art. They believed in the promotion of modern art, the connection between visual art and music, and a spontaneous, intuitive approach to painting that is characteristic of German Expressionism. In addition to full-color illustrations of works by the artists of the Blue Rider group, this book features pieces not included in previous books and a design that echoes that of the Lenbachhaus Museum
