The friendship between Franz Marc (1880-1916) and August Macke (1887-1914) was of vital importance to both painters. Their close bond lasted four years and came to an abrupt end with the death of Macke shortly after the outbreak of World War I. This catalogue brings together paintings, watercolors, drawings, handcrafts, objects and documents from these two artists, demonstrating the extent to which they influenced one another in their work. While Macke, seven years younger than Marc, took a sensual and spontaneous approach to the visual world, his friend possessed an elevated, theoretical vision, seeking the spiritual unity of existence through the image. Despite conceptual, cultural and political differences, a deep mutual affection characterized their joint undertakings, such as the exhibitions of the Blaue Reiter or their conversations on Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism and the work of their contemporaries.

August Macke (1887-1914) was a master of German Expressionism, a movement which sprang up in the early 1900s with the intent to forego physical reality in search of its emotional counterpart, with a particular emphasis on expressing dark moods of tragedy and angst. Macke was a master of color and form, producing eye-catching canvases that evoke a strong sympathetic reaction in the viewer. He was equally at home portraying the sun drenched streets of Tunisia, the cloudy sky around the Bonn cathedral, and the faceless multitude of a crowded railway station. In this compelling text, Walter Cohen examines the brief life of an artist whose seemingly limitless potential was tragically cut short by his untimely death.

An emblematic figure of the early 20th century, Paul Klee participated in the expansive Avant-Garde movements in Germany and Switzerland. From the vibrant Blaue Reiter movement to Surrealism at the end of the 1930s and throughout his teaching years at the Bauhaus, he attempted to capture the organic and harmonic nature of painting by alluding to other artistic mediums such as poetry, literature, and, above all, music. While he collaborated with artists like August Macke and Alexej von Jawlensky, his most famous partnership was with the abstract expressionist, Wassily Kandinsky.

Paul Klee gehört zu den Künstlern, die sich nur schwerlich einer bestimmten kunstgeschichtlichen Bewegung zuordnen lassen. In engem Kontakt mit Wassily Kandinsky und Franz Marc gehörte er wie diese der expressionistischen Künstlergruppe Der Blaue Reiter an. Später knüpfte er Verbindungen zum Bauhaus und unterrichtete sogar Malerei an der Dessauer Schule. Seiner Ansicht nach ging es bei der Kunst keineswegs um die Produktion, sondern vielmehr darum, die Dinge äußerst sichtbar werden zu lassen. In seinen Gemälden vereinte Klee geschickt die zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts vorherrschenden Tendenzen. Er führte kubistische und orphistische Elemente in den deutschen Expressionismus ein und verlieh seinen eigenen Werken eine surrealistische und melancholische Poesie. Der Autor führt uns hier die Wunder der Klee’schen Welt vor Augen, in der jeder Pinselstrich die Macht der Farben bestätigt.
