The title Rhapsody in Blue refers to the piece of music by the American composer George Gershwin (1898-1937) from 1924. A musical kaleidoscope, in which he combines rhythms and melodies of jazz with elements from classical music. Neglecting the existing categories of movements, periods, styles and media, these galleries show a selection from the modern and contemporary art collection that has been arranged based on their hues of blue. In this way, the presentation offers a new perspective of looking at these individual works.
