Invited by Franz Marc and Wassily Kandinsky to join the newly formed avant-garde artists' group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) (JAMA cover, March 1, 2000), Mathias Heinrich Ernst Campendonk (1889-1957) became its youngest member. He had been "discovered" the previous year by another member, Auguste Macke, whose cousin Helmut Macke shared a studio with Campendonk in the small, provincial Rhineland town of Krefeld. To survive in what they perceived as a highly materialistic age, Kandinsky and Marc had founded Der Blaue Reiter to "give artistic form to inner nature, ie, spiritual experience."
