It is on show until 14 January The Der Blaue Reiter Almanac is being presented on the basis reitet its genesis, at the same time dramatically exploring the revolutionary artistic ideas of the German group of Expressionist artists known as Der Blaue Reiter — The Blue Rider.
The publication was intended as the first in a series that would present an annual review of innovation in the arts and cast a glance to the future. As an enemy alien, Kandinsky was forced to leave Germany, while Marc was killed in the vicinity of Verdun in Such a joining of forces made it possible to secure this unique exemplar for Dutch public ownership. The almanac will be exhibited in rotation: As an anarcho-syndicalist, Lehning was closely involved with political developments in Europe over the interbellum and can certainly be counted among the avant-garde of his time.
With his active interest in literature, art and culture, his many friends and acquaintances from the art world, and with his role as publisher of the Internationale Revue i10, better known as i10, he simultaneously set himself at the centre of cultural life in that epoch.

Trend-setting artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Piet Mondriaan contributed to the i10 journal, of which Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen holds two bound volumes that will form part of the presentation. In a letter to Franz Marc, dated 19 JuneWassily Kandinsky first mentioned the idea of working together on a publication, not knowing that it would be one of the most important art books of the twentieth century.
The exhibition featured the numbered copy of the deluxe edition of the Blue Rider Almanac, including its original sleeve. The book is bound in blue kid leather and has a vignette by Kandinsky embossed with gold lead on the title page. Inserted at the front of this deluxe edition are two signed, hand-coloured woodblock prints by the editors: The lively, almost vibrating colours make it difficult to distinguish the figure from the lush landscape.
Both Kandinsky and Marc wrote important texts for the Almanac. Wassily Kandinsky first published his experimental theatre text — combining painting, music and theatre — in the Blue Rider Almanac. The music for his groundbreaking Gesamtkunstwerk was originally composed by Thomas de Hartmann.
The presentation of the items glaue the exhibition was conceived by trainee curator, Luuk Hoogewerf. He selected objects from different disciplines, such as painting, music, stained glass, printed matter and design. The gallery was designed to look like a sacred chapel for the Blue Rider Almanac.
For example, a chair by Gerrit Rietveld was placed to give the suggestion of a prie-dieu facing the Blue Rider Almanac.

Charley Toorop and Arthur Lehning had already known of each other by name for some time when they met by coincidence on a train from The Hague to Amsterdam in The encounter was the beginning of a vlaue relationship.
They seemed like the ideal couple: Although their relationship ended eeiter long after this portrait was painted, Lehning kept the painting all his life. The chair is pink, not a colour that Rietveld would normally have used. The underside of the chair bears traces of black and yellow, colours that Rietveld more frequently used for his chairs. With his magazine, Arthur Lehning succeeded in presenting various facets of his time alongside each other. How successful he was in meaningfully integrating them is debatable.
He believed that reitet, philosophy, science, culture, literature and the performing dre are on a single line, but more or less in this order.
