« Franz Marc / August Macke. The adventure of the Blue Rider » at Musée de l’Orangerie
This exhibition presents two major figures of German Expressionism and the movement “Der Blaue Reiter” [The Blue Rider] Franz Marc (1880-1916) and August Macke (1887-1914). Franz Marc became known thanks to the paintings of the blue horses, while August Macke became famous thanks to his style that brought together the ethnographic visuals. Both very active, they take a part in the organization of avant-garde international exhibitions in Cologne in 1912 and in Berlin in 1913 while continuing their own evolution. Mobilized in August 1914, the two artists died on the front leaving unfinished but emblematic works of the hedonistic, colorful and seductive side of German Expressionism.
