I thought the service was outstanding. I received the shipment quickly and it was packaged nicely. I appreciated the confirmation too. I like to print them and keep them so I can keep track of what I order.

Die Blaue Vier

Following on the heels of Die Brücke was Der Blaue Reiter, German for “The Blue Rider.” While the Die Brücke was being recognized as the first formal group of Expressionists, Der Blaue Reiter was forming. The group can be traced to as early as 1903, when Wassily Kandinsky showed the painting of a naked blue man riding a blue horse. In 1911 Kandinsky and Franz Marc founded Der Blaue Reiter to explore their ideas of emotion-based creativity in the visual, written and musical arts. Kandinsky pushed the limits of abstraction and pioneered non-objective art by choosing other abstract ideas, such as music and feeling, as the subjects of his painting. In 1912 a show of Der Blaue Reiter was mounted and included artists Marc, Kandinsky, August Macke, Henri Rousseau, Robert Delaunay and Paul Klee. All artists had a spiritual or mystical aspect in their paintings, and all urged creative freedom of expression.

Latest Product Reviews

This is by far the best ink I have used for my comics! Consistency is perfect. Pigment has the tendency to settle at the bottom of the bottle but I just stir it with a brush and it dissolves quickly. I buy this product in batches,because I am terrified that it will be discontinued. Joe Kubert's school recommended this ink.

I have sealer videos on the product, I truly love it just wish it came in others colors.
- Brenda collins in Chicago, IL
I have been using this product for years and find that it works perfectly on my gessoed wood pieces. The biggest complaint I have is that over the years Grumbacher has downsized the size of the bottle, now making it only available in these small, expensive quantities. I would like for them to offer them in a larger size.
