Morgner exhibited in the second Blue Rider exposition. Under the influence of Kandinsky and Jawlensky he moved towards abstraction as a means of expressing his passionate feelings about the world: My medium of expression is color… not by shading and modifying colors, but by purposeful juxtaposition of masculine and feminine colors. Conscripted in 1913, Morgner was killed in Flanders in 1917.
