Flanks



Little Yellow Horses, 1912 by Franz Marc, Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart

Der Blaue Reiter (the blue rider) was a group of Expressionist artists, most famously Marc and Kandinsky who chose the name because Marc liked horses, Kandinsky liked riders and they both liked blue.

Marc is a favourite of mine also. I had never heard how they came up with "Blaue Reiter".
