Franz Marc A Retrospective
Annegret Hoberg and Helmut Friedel
This comprehensive collection celebrates the work of Franz Marc, a pioneer of Germany's Expressionist movement.
Before his career was tragically cut short by World War I, Marc had gained recognition as a co-founder with Wassily Kandinsky of the influential Blue Rider Group. Marc, whose primary focus was the world of animals, is now recognized as one of the greatest of the German Expressionists. This chronologically arranged book brings together more than 300 of Marc's works. It includes perceptive comments about the artist's life, examples of his correspondence, and insight into the unique symbolic language he employed to make sense of the difficult times in which he lived.
Annegret Hoberg is a curator in the Lenbachhaus in Munich, Germany, which houses one of the most extensive collections of Franz Marc in the world. She is the author of numerous books on art, many published by Prestel.

Absolutely beautiful Apr 18, 2007
This book is a gorgeous example of what a monograph should be. Its heavy paper stock and color reproduction does Marc's glorious colors justice, and the pictures are given the room, the white space, and the high print quality they deserve. The price is likely too high for someone unfamiliar with his work to take the gamble, but for those who already have an appreciation for Marc, I would urge them to consider investing in this lovely collection rather than any number of lesser books.

The book really is a treat. Very much like actually attending a major art retropspective at a museum. A big plus of the book is the series of pictures of drawings that one rarely sees in any exhbition particualry of this artist. The text is well structured and the ideas fluent. The extent of the examination of paintings has depth and is a visual delight. Truly a book to have in one's collection as well as to share.
