1880-1916

German Expressionist Painter

Franz Marc ( 1880 - 1916) was a German painter and printmaker, one of the leading members of the Blue Rider (Blaue Reiter) movement. Born in Munich, Marc studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich before working as a freelance artist.

Marc's work is characterized by bright colors, abstract forms, and an interest in animal and nature motifs. He was inspired by the work of Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, and also had an interest in Eastern spiritualism and theosophy.

In 1911, Marc co-founded the Blue Rider movement with Wassily Kandinsky. The Blue Rider was an expressionist art movement that emphasized emotion, imagination, and individualism. The group held several exhibitions, showcasing the works of its members, which included some of the most significant artists of the time, such as August Macke, Alexej von Jawlensky and Gabriele Münter.

Franz Marc's artistic style was heavily influenced by his love for animals and his belief that they were spiritual beings. He painted colorful, stylized depictions of animals, such as horses, deer, and birds, often in dream-like landscapes. He aimed to express the inner spirituality of his subjects and the harmony of nature.

Unfortunately, Marc's life and career were cut short by World War I. He enlisted in the German army in 1914 and was killed in action in 1916. Despite his short career, Marc's work had a profound impact on the development of modern art and is considered an important precursor to the Surrealist movement of the 1920s and 1930s.

Today, his works can be found in major art museums and galleries around the world, including the Lenbachhaus in Munich, the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau in Munich, and the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf.
