The Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider) art movement was founded in 1911, by the young painters Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc, and remained active in Europe until 1914. Originally published in "Munich", in 1912, and edited by Kandinsky and Marc, "The Blaue Reiter Almanac" presented the movement's synthesis of international culture to the European avant-garde at large. In both the selection of the essays and its innovative interplay of word and image, the Almanac remains one of the most critically important works on artistic theory and culture of the twentieth century. This edition, long unavailable in English and indispensable to any student of modernism, includes the original documents and musical notations, as well as essays by Kandinsky, Schonberg, Marc, and others, and an extensive critical introduction, placing the "Blaue Reiter" in context for contemporary readers. Nearly 150 illustrations, from ancient, primitive, and contemporary sources, capture the wide-ranging passions that inspired Kandinsky's attempt to make modernism accessible across national and chronological boundaries.

Text: English, German (translation)Review:
"We went with a divining rod through the art of the past and present. We showed only that art which lives untouched by the constraint of convention. Our devoted love was extended to all artistic expression which is born out of itself, lives on its own merit, and does not walk with the crutches of custom. Wherever we have seen a crevice in the crust of convention, we have called attention to it, because we have hoped for a force underneath, which will someday come to light" - Franz Marc"
