Blaue Reiter at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:
(German: "The Blue Rider") Organization of Expressionist artists formed in Munich in 1911 by W. Kandinsky and F. Marc. The name derived from a volume of essays and illustrations they published. Other members included P. Klee and August Macke (1887-1914). Influenced by Jugendstil, Cubism, and Futurism but lacking a specific program or philosophy, they exhibited with an international group, incl. G. Braque, A. Derain, and P.Picasso. The group disintegrated at the outbreak of World War I. See also Expressionism.
