Riassunto: In 1924 Galka Scheyer brought the work of four fellow avant-garde artists from Germany to America. With tireless enthusiasm, she promoted the work of Lyonel Feininger, Alexej von Jawlensky, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee -- the "Blue Four" -- so-named to reflect their earlier association with the Blue Rider group (Der Blaue Reiter) of Munich Expressionists. This strikingly beautiful book reproduces in full color more than 140 Blue Four works of art as well as many black and white illustrations that have never been published before. The book brings to life Scheyer's activities promoting modern art in the United States from the 1920s to her death in 1945 and documents her friendships with the four artists.
Scheyer introduced the works of the Blue Four in New York, then San Francisco and Los Angeles, organizing exhibitions, lecturing, and making contacts in the art world. Based on extensive original materials in Europe and the United States, this book details Scheyer's career; her friendships in Germany, Switzerland, and the U.S.; her life in a Hollywood home designed by Richard Neutra to display art; and her relationships with celebrities and extraordinary, collectors. The book also discusses the four artists' friendships among themselves, the works of art they exchanged, and the difficulties each encountered in the 1930s.
