August Macke visited Paris in 1907. The same year he became acquainted with Lovis Corinth, who introduced him to Expressionism oil painting. Macke was also friends with famous abstract Expressionism artist Paul Klee, and both artists traveled to North Africa with the trip inspiring his Turkish Cafe 1914 painting.
Macke is a leading member of the German Expressionist group of artists and the Blaue Reiter art movement. He was born in Germany in 1914, and his colorful paintings reveal an intense palette and lively form. However, the Fauvism paintings of Henri Matisse and the Cubist and Orphism paintings of Robert Delaunay inspired much of his work. August Macke paintings, Colored Forms I and Colored Forms II, illustrate Robert Delaunay's influence. Lady in Green Jacket 1913, held at the Art Museum Ludwig in Cologne, is one of our popular paintings.
August Macke is a prominent German Expressionist painter. His peers include Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and George Grosz, to name a few.

While Wassily Kandinsky founded the Group in 1911, Macke is also a prominent member of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider).
His life was short, and he died at the young age of 27 in 1914 on the battlefields of World War 1.
