The group of artists known as The Blue Rider had a big influence on modern art. Munich's Lenbachhaus museum owns the world's largest collection of the group's works. The highlights are now back on display there.
With his abstract forms and bold colors, Wassily Kandinsky was a revolutionary. Hated by the Nazis, he not only painted, but taught other artists to think outside the box. He was born 150 years ago on December 4.
Artist Franz Marc died 100 years ago. An exhibition in Munich shows how he and his avantgarde group ʺDer Blaue Reiterʺ revolutionized the art world.
Chances are, you've owned a poster or sent a postcard with Franz Marc's art on it. His take on nature was radical, but beautiful. Marc died 100 years ago on March 4 at the bloody Battle of Verdun.
While expressions like "fake news" and "alternative facts" are part of everyday doublespeak, the exhibition "After the Fact" in Munich fittingly explores different levels of propaganda as seen by artists.
