Synopsis: This is a collection of work housed in the Lenbachhaus in Munich of the artist's group, The Blue Rider, which became a symbol of revolution in modern art in the early 20th century. Their preoccupation was with abstraction, the forces and laws of nature, primitive art, and the role of colour. The work of Vassily Kadinsky, Franz Marc and Paul Klee have since become avant-garde icons known throughout the world. The Lenbachhaus possesses the world's finest collection of works by these artists and this volume brings together some 120 highlights.

Review: This handsome book celebrates the collection of early-20th-century paintings in the Lenbachhaus in Munich by the Blue Rider, the name taken by a group of avant-garde artists led by Wassily Kandinsky in 1911. Their motivating force was a revolutionary "urge to abstraction." Even today, the intense colors and wild compositions of their paintings have a powerful impact; in their day they were sensational. In 1912 the group published an influential manifesto on the direction of modern art; it included articles on music and the arts of different cultures, especially primitive art, in an attempt to, in Kandinsky's words, "bring down the barriers between the arts." The story of the Blue Rider, told by the director and curator of the Lenbachhaus, re-creates the excitement of the passionate young painters as they expounded their theories. When Paul Klee explains his "discipline of reduction," his deceptively simple paintings suddenly take on new focus. Beginning with Kandinsky and ending with Klee, the book illustrates 129 paintings by members of the group. Extended captions give context to the individual artists and analyze their objectives; 60 vintage photos add visual background. A delightful phrase by Kandinsky describes the paintings in the Blue Rider's most momentous public exhibition and at the same time summarizes the importance of the group, before World War I tore it apart: "Together they are the symphony of the twentieth century." --John Stevenson

Book Description PRESTEL, 2000. Book Condition: AS NEW. COMO NUEVO. 328 pages. Bookcondition: NEW. AS NEW. NUEVO COMO NUEVOThe Blue Rider became a symbol of a revolution in modern art in the early twentieth century. Works by Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, and Paul Klee have since become avant-garde icons known throughout the world. The Lenbachhaus in Munich, Germany, possesses the world’s finest collection of works by these artists, and this outstanding volume brings together some 120 highlights in a sumptuously revised edition. 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. 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.
