The Blue Rider: A Dance in Colours: Watercolours, Drawings and Graphic Arts from the Lenbachhaus Munich Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Active in Germany in the years leading up to World War I, the Blue Rider was a collective of artists, cofounded by Wassily Kandinsky, that was a key influence on Expressionism. This volume offers a highly illustrated tour through the large collection of watercolors, drawings, and prints from the group that are held by the Lenbachhaus Munich. It offers more than 230 full-color reproductions, many of which appear here for the first time in book form, and accompanying essays situate the work and the group in the context of the artistic world of their time. 

A brilliant tour of the output of a group whose innovative career was tragically cut short by war, The Blue Rider will be treasured by all fans of German art.
