Poetry of colour

“Franz Marc responded to his friend August Macke’s definition of the three primary colours the same month: “Blue is the male principle, stern and spiritual. Yellow the female principle, gentle, cheerful and sensual. Red is matter, brutal and heavy.”

These emotional categories – melancholy, cheerfulness, brutality – serve as the point of departure for the individual sections of the exhibition »The Poetry of Colour«, featuring paintings, drawings and prints of the Classical Modern period from the prominent holdings of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.

IWCS members and their partners are invited to come and discover the Blue Four and some of the most important painters of the early 1900s with us during a guided tour at Staatsgalerie Stuttgart next month.

The club will sponsor the cost of English-language tour itself and each person in attendance pays only the €12 admission price. You can RSVP via the Facebook event or by using the contact form below.
