Publisher's description: From the first exhibition of German expressionism they saw in Venice, Swiss couple Gabriele and Anna Braglia, fascinated by the vivid colors and great expressive power of the artworks, set about to acquire select paintings, watercolors, and drawings from the movement. Their treasure trove of German expressionism was made accessible to the public in Lugano, Switzerland, in September 2015. This exquisitely produced publication accompanies the exhibition of their exceptional collection, providing a comprehensive overview of approximately fifty works of art. From Paul Klee, Emil Nolde, and the Blauer Reiter artists to Lyonel Feininger and Max Pechstein, the paintings in the Swiss Braglia Collection represent important contributions to German expressionism. Reproduced here in full-page color illustrations, these works are complemented by essays from international experts on the movement. An ideal book for lovers of German expressionism and art in general, Nolde, Klee & Der Blaue Reiter will be appreciated for its pictorial reproductions, its charming and enlightening essays, and as a catalog for this outstanding collection.
