Lenbachhaus Gallery

The museum gained international renown largely through the world’s most comprehensive collection of works of „der Blaue Reiter“ (the Blue Rider). Around 1900, this Munich group of artists which included, among others, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, August Macke, Gabriele Münter und Alexej Jawlensky, looked for new ways of art and expression in rejection of the artistic establishement of their time. Both revolutionary and challenging, their master pieces are shown to advantage in the recently redesigned Lenbachhaus.
