The Music of Colour: Kandinsky and Der Blaue Reiter

In the wake of Van Gogh and Gauguin’s post-impressionism, artists across Europe were exploring the power of colour in the first years of the 20th century. This month at The Beecroft we’ll look at the paintings made by Der Blaue Reiter -The Blue Rider – group of artists in Munich that included Wasily Kandinsky, Franz Marc and Gabriele Munter.
