August Macke (1877 - 1914)

August Macke (1877 - 1914)

A leading member of the German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider). However, his artistic career spanned only 8 years and his life was cut short when he was killed during the first few weeks of World War I. He was born at Meschede Germany in 1887 and died in Germany in 1914 at the age of 26 years.

He was a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dusseldorf and lived in Germany at a particularly innovative time for the German art movement. He moved from theater and costume design to creating works of brilliant color and simplified form. Macke traveled extensively throughout Europe although most of his creative life was spent in Bonn.

Diego Rivera (1886 - 1957)

Probably Mexico's greatest 20th century painter. Diego studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Mexico. He received a grant to study in Europe and worked in Madrid at the Studio of Eduardo Chicharra. In 1909 he lived in Paris and adopted an impressionist style of art. By 1913 Rivera had turned to Cubism and exhibited at the Gallerie Bernheim-Jeune and Salone d'Automne. In 1914 he met Juan Gris and Pablo Picasso.

In 1921 he returned to Mexico and founded the Mexican School of Painting. Rivera is known for his large and politically motivated murals and for his famous love affair with Frida Kahlo. His 1933 Mural for RCA in New York attracted huge controversy. It contained the words "God does not exist" and was withheld from public view for 9 years.
