August Macke (1887–1914) is regarded as one of the most outstanding protagonists of the Blaue Reiter movement. At the heart of this publication is the young Expressionist’s time at Rosengarten House on Lake Thun in Switzerland from October 1913 to June 1914. Macke developed a manner of painting entirely his own, as evidenced by the numerous studies and oil paintings reproduced in this volume. Here, as with Cézanne’s Mont Sainte-Victoire, we learn to view the landscape surrounding Lake Thun as a modernist topos. The first publication to shed light on Macke’s affinity for the country, August Macke and Switzerland offers a revealing overview of how place and landscape can inform not only an artist’s subject matter but also his style. Readers are also offered glimpses into the trip to Tunisia that Macke, Paul Klee and Louis Moilliet planned in April 1914 during their Swiss sojourn.
