Auguste Macke was lucky enough to enjoy financial security, and was always free to study and travel. he also gained the patronage of his wife's uncle, Bernhard Koehler, in return for advising him on his art collection. Macke first saw Impressionist paintings in Paris in 1907. Then, in Munich in 1909, he met Kandinsky and Marc, co-founders of th3 Expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider) and worked with them to prepare the almanac for their first exhibition. Within a few years, through frequent travel and personal contacts, Macke had encountered every major modern art movement: the French Fauves (including Matisse), the Cubism of Picasso and Braque, and the Italian Futurists. He was particularly sympathetic to the colour.
