Franz Marc: Picture "Three Horses" (1912), museum framing

Animals exercised a special fascination for him. Franz Marc has studied not only as an artist in the smallest detail of their anatomy, but he also knew a lot approx. their behavior and gestures. And so animal motifs draw through his entire artistic work, in particular the representation of horses. There are numerous drawings, the famous small sculpture "Two horses" from the years 1908/1909 - and of course subsequently become almost iconic works such as his "Blue Horse" by 1911.

The three horses of 1912 show Marcs natural and artificial understanding particularly clear: they merge almost with nature surrounding them. Colours and shapes of animals and landscape come together to form a harmonious whole which was nothing less than the universal unit for Marc in the world.

Franz Marc (1880-1916) unique talent was recognized and nurtured at the Munich Academy. On several trips to Paris, he was impressed by Van Gogh works, as he saw it for the first time. These works were significantly and helped him to develop autonomous artistic language. Through his friend August Macke, Wassily Kandinsky and Gabriele Munter and Alfred Kubin, he knew about the expressionist artists association founded in 1911 "The Blue Rider". At the outbreak of the First World War Marc was drafted into military service and fell two years later in the grave fighting at Verdun.

Marc grappled with naturalism, the Art Nouveau and the French Impressionism, but was looking for a new expression language to represent "the spiritual essence of things" can. With never a previously unknown consequence he opened the way for an art in the colours far beyond the naturalistic representation acquired a symbolic meaning: "Every colour must say clearly who and what it is, and has to this on a clear form", said Marc. Blue is the colour of the spiritual with him, red is love, passion and vulnerability, yellow is the sun and the femininity.

In the center of his painting were in particular animals, for him it symbolized purity and originality in contrast to people. Just like Kandinsky he was looking for the renewal of the spiritual in art.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.
