The Blue Rider

The artistic association Der Blaue Reiter, or "Blue Rider", arose from the desire of certain creators, such as Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc, to give a voice to the followers of expressionism, who advocated color and subjective thought. Their form of expression is lyric and tries to put onto canvas feelings by means of rhythms and images (colors).

Founded in 1912 in Germany, the group advocated an abstract approach to art, with their inspiration coming from their moods and emotions rather than surrounding nature. The members of the Blue Rider held several exhibits and published their writings, before separating during the World War I.
