NOTES
Heinrich Campendonk, the youngest member of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), was fascinated by the peasant culture of Southern Germany. Here he represents a young man in Bavarian folk costume, surrounded by four animals, trees, and flowers in a scene of pastoral harmony. Campendonk evolved a colorful visual language of cubistic, faceted forms influenced particularly by the work of his mentor, Franz Marc.
