Item description for Franz Marc (Postcard Book) by Franz Marc...
Now available in paperback, this overview of a brief but brilliant career focuses on the symbolic poignancy of Franz Marc's paintings and his underlying vision of a world populated largely by animals.
Before his tragic death at Verdun in 1916, Franz Marc made an enormous contribution to German Expressionist painting. A co-founder with Wassily Kandinsky of the Blue Rider Group, Marc and his fellow artists sought to make sense of the destruction around them through symbolism and abstraction.
The curator of America's first exhibition of Marc's paintings, Marc Rosenthal offers penetrating insight into the artist's transcendent paintings, in which feelings of despair and exaltation are brought to life through images of animals, landscapes, and pure abstraction. Seventy-one full-color plates demonstrate the brilliant tones and bold style that characterize Marc's work. The accompanying text provides an important biographical perspective and critical appraisal of one of the most significant artists to emerge amid the chaos of early twentieth century Europe.

The magic modern german art. Sep 5, 2000
I found in this site this great book, of one of the most important painters that headed the modern art in painting in germany. It is very difficult to find books from this artist, part of the Blue Rider Grup (Der Blaue Reiter). So it is great that this site provided us with such a treasure.
