The Blue Rider

"Blue is the spiritual principle."

A statement made by Franz Marc, who together with Wassily Kandinsky founded the group of artists known as "Der Blaue Reiter". Kandinsky's explanation for their name choice is less intellectual: "We came up with the name, 'The Blue Rider', whilst sitting drinking coffee together in the summer house, in Sindelsdorf. The both of us love the colour blue, Marc – horses, I – riders." The rest is art history.
