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 Marcs works. It includes perceptive comments about the artists 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.
