Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A casualty of World War I, Franz Marc was a pioneer of German Expressionism and co-founder with Wassily Kandinsky of the Blue Rider, which was both a publication and coalition of artists. His most famous images are paintings of blue horses, which are meant to convey the spiritual essence of nature lost to modern man and a personal symbolism of color. Rosenthal curated a 1979 Franz Marc exhibition at the University of California, Berkeley, and has expanded this text from his catalog of that show. His 44-page essay covers biographical and aesthetic aspects briefly but cogently. The text is followed by a 66-page full-color spread of paintings, one to a page. This provides an excellent concentrated visual reference on Franz Marc for students of modern art that would be hard to find in many other sources.

"Brilliant tones and bold style that characterize Marc’s work. The accompanying text provides an important biological perspective and critical appraisal…" -- Sirreadalot, May 2004

Format: Hardcover
I found in Amazon 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 amazon provided us with such a treasure.
