Celebrate German Expressionism with this gorgeous polyester scarf featuring a work from one of the founders of Der Blaue Reiter movement, Vassily Kandinsky. The Archer (Bogenschütze) embodies Der Blaue Reiter’s desire to secede from mainstream art of the time and showcases their dedication to modern art with abstract and expressionist designs.
Der Blaue Reiter was a German Expressionist movement that originated in Munich in 1911. It included a loose association of painters and was led by Vassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc. Members shared an interest in abstract forms and colors and sought to counteract the materialism of the 1910s. The movement was largely disbanded at the beginning of World War I, but had a huge influence on the development of abstract art.
