The first major review of the work of short-lived German Expressionist Morgner, this catalogue features fine reproductions of some 160 paintings, drawings, watercolors and prints which range from Van Gogh-influenced studies of rural life and luminous depictions of religious scenes to semi-abstract compositions based on swirling color-defined forms. Five critical essays discuss Morgner's dramatic use of color as an autonomous pictorial element, the development of his draughtsmanship, the suppression of his work by the Nazis, and his relationships with Kandinsky, Marc and other artists of the Blaue Reiter.
