Fauves and Expressionism Marmottan Museum

Green gray-and goose-step: the Nazis did not like the color of freedom. He called all the avant-garde before and after the war of 14-18 "degenerate" and then began to serve in the collection when he put his hands on. Fortunately, not far from Düsseldorf, Wuppertal (Nordrhein-Westfalen) part of the funds of the local museum has survived. Anticipating the storm, the banker Eduard von der Heydt had taken care to make his paintings away in Switzerland. Let the work of Die Brücke (The Bridge), a group founded in Dresden in 1905 which brought together Kirchner, Heckel and Emil Nolde. Others of the Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), training had taken over about 1911 of the New Artists Association of Munich, represented by Kandinsky, Jawlensky, Franz Marc, Macke and Münter. Still others from the "new objectivity" Beckmann, Dix and Grosz; oil signed with Austrian expressionist Kokoschka and Oppenheimer such and such beasts French Dufy, Braque, Vlaminck and Van Dongen. To complement the international anti-academic, the von der Heydt had also bought the Norwegian Munch, the French or Russian Delaunay von Bechtejeff (heavily influenced by Art Deco). Presented at Marmottan in exchange for Impressionist treasures, fifty pieces in this collection reveals a genuine Europe of creation. Saturated overseas, backfiring green, bright orange, yellow sunshine, garish purple and red peony, or otherwise, in lines so dark and oppressive they become prophetic, these paintings attest an era where new universes arose in bursts of all major urban centers on both sides of the Rhine. Their link? Der Sturm, a magazine founded by Berlin Herwarth Walden, who was married to a poet of ... Wuppertal. This collection of works by Expressionist and beasts, now considered among the best in Germany, has always supported his audacity. She is not only because it has escaped the burning, but also by its intrinsic qualities: the touch of bitterness and violence of the stroke, meaning the biting cartoon. And, of course, exacerbated the colors palettes, innovative framing and touching themes such as women, the peaceful nature or otherwise of the city dangerously modern.
