The Blue Rider
 

Fast Facts

The Blue Rider was a sophisticated, intellectual group lead by Kandinsky in Munich, Germany. Their work expresses inner feeling rather than observed nature - “an outward expression of an inner feeling.” As with other expressionistic groups in Germany, the Blue Rider painters were individualistic, interested in psychology, highly emotional and “passionately subjective.” They chose the blue rider image because they associated it with a spiritual non-figurative mystical art of the future.
