In my January 23rd post, I wrote about Georges Braque’s painting, Homage to J.S. Bach. August Macke, the leading German expressionist painter, also painted an homage to Bach. The painting, titled Colored Composition: Homage to Johann Sebastian Bach was rendered in 1912, towards the end of Macke’s life.
Macke was inspired by the new, colorful, Cubist-influenced style called Orphism. It would be interesting to know more about Macke’s connection to Bach.
