FRANZ MARC

German painter and printmaker, Franz Marc became a key leader in Expressionism. His notable works helped usher Fauvism and Cubism. Animals in natural settings became the focus in his works, depicting them in bright, primary colors. To Marc, the three primary colors held specific meaning: blue represented masculinity, yellow represented femininity, and red represented violence. Marc learned to paint in French museums; he copied and learned from paintings, much like many other artists did from the era. He particularly admired Vincent can Gogh. Before his end, Marc was drafted into war, where one of his most noteworthy accomplishments was painting large canvases in a pointillistic style that would act as camouflage against airstrikes. The German government eventually ordered for notable artists’ removal from combat, but Marc was kill by a shell splinter before the orders reached his division.
