• Franz Marc die grosse blauen pferde

Nolde, Klee & der Blaue Reiter


Until the middle of June

For the second time in Lugano the "Fondazione Gabriele e Anna Braglia" is presenting to the public an art exhibition about the German Expressionism with the art works and the paintings of the most important artists of this  particular artistic ad cultural period of the 20th century.

The exhibition focuses on the members of “Der Blaue Reiter”( The Blue Rider) movement: a group of artists united in rejection of the Neue Künstlervereinigung München in Munich lasting from 1911 to 1914 when it was disrupted by the outbreak of the First World War.

The event includes works by Russian representatives, such as Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky and Marianne von Werefkin who painted, together with the German artists August Macke, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter, and Heinrich Campendonk, in the southern Bavarian countryside. Artworks by the “Northern German Expressionists”, such as Ernst-Ludwig Kirchner and Hermann Max Pechstein, are also part of this extraordinary exhibition.

Essays illustrating the meaning of this important artistic movement, will be given to visitors in order not only to appreciate the aesthetic value but also the intellectual value of this art exposition.
