Franz Marc: Painting "Green Horse" (1912), Framed

Animals always had a special impact on the artist. As an artist Franz Mark precisely studied not only their anatomy but also their behavior and gestures. So the animal motifs were presented in many of the artist's works. Most of all he liked horses. There were numerous drawings, the famous small sculpture "Two Horses" from the years 1908/1909 - and of course almost iconic works such as his "Blue Horse" from 1911.
His "Green Horse" from 1912 represents the understanding of natural and artificial: it almost merges with nature. Colors and forms of the animal and landscape flow into a harmonious whole. For Mark it was nothing less than the universal unity of the world.

4-color gridless reproduction on artistic carton. Picture size ca. 27 x 42 cm (H/W). Sheet format 46 x 66 cm (H/W). Framed in silver color solid wood frame with mat, glazed. Format ca. 57 x 72 cm (H/W).

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.
