Auguste Macke (1887-1914) was one of the leading members of the German Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter. n 1912 Macke met the French painter Robert Delaunay, who worked in a colourful Cubist-influenced style called Orphism. Subsequently, Macke introduced a Cubist analysis of form into his own paintings. Throughout the evolution of his style, Macke generally remained faithful to Impressionist subject matter, portraying contemporary scenes of urban leisure.

August Macke (1887-1914) was one of the leading members of the Der Blaue Reiter. He lived during a particularly innovative time for German art. August Macke's oeuvre can be considered as Expressionism and also as part of Fauvism (as in this painting). The paintings concentrate primarily on expressing feelings and moods rather than reproducing objective reality, usually distorting colour and form.
