Big Blue Horses

In 1912 Marc founded the Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Knight) together with Kandinsky. The name of the group is a tribute to the horses, Marc’s favourite animals and to the knights of fairy tales, beloved by Kandinsky. As they both adored the blue colour, they put it in the name of the movement as well. The group's manifesto work is considered "Blue Horse", canvas painted by Marc in 1911.

The original work is dated 1911 and is kept at the Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis, USA. In 1912 Marc founded the Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Knight) together with Kandinsky. The name of the group is a tribute to the horses, Marc’s favourite animals and to the knights of fairy tales, beloved by Kandinsky. As they both adored the blue colour, they put it in the name of the movement as well. The group's manifesto work is considered "Blue Horse", canvas painted by Marc in 1911. The aim of the movement was to remain "strangers to the world" and far from the official art. "Art", they declared, "must be the sediment of all the forces that life has not been able to absorb." In the painting "Great blue horses" elements of Futurism, Cubism and Expressionism flow together: Marc transforms the traditional figure of a horse into pure attraction and harmony without decomposing the subject and remaining linked to it. The title of the work is deliberately anti-naturalist: blue horses do not exist; the colours used to represent animals are strongly anti-naturalist as well. Marc gives great importance to the colours and through them he tries to express the feelings of the horses. Each tonality for him has a precise symbolic meaning: blue is synonymous with masculinity and spirituality. In the picture the curved line predominates, and the composition is extremely rigorous. Art for Marc is revelation, creation, personal expression and not representation of the real world.
