The Blue Rider

Until 15 May 2011

From February to May, 2011, the ALBERTINA Museum will present drawings and watercolor paintings of the Blue Rider from the collection of Munich’s Lenbachhaus.

The Blue Rider (German: “Der Blaue Reiter”) was a loose grouping of artists, named after the almanac first published by Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc in 1912 in Munich. In 1911 and 1912 they organize two exhibitions of works by artists, who pursue similar artistic ideas to those of the two artist-editors. In 1957 the Lenbachhaus in Munich comes into the possession of more than 400 artworks by Gabriele Münter and her long-time partner Wassily Kandinsky, left to it following Münter’s death. The exhibition features works by the following artists: August Macke, Franz Marc, Marianne von Werefkin, Alexej von Jawlensky, Wassily Kandinsky, Heinrich Campendonk, Gabriele Münter, Paul Klee, and Alfred Kubin.
