Inspiration: Exciting Expressionist Franz Marc

Deer in a Monastery Garden, Franz Marc, 1912

Previously I’ve posted about Kandinsky being a pioneer completely abstract art. Well, one of his best friends was this guy Franz Marc, and together they introduced a whole new movement of art, through Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Horsemen) almanac and collections.

I get so excited looking at the evolution of Marc’s work, as he started to re-imagine the cubist grid into these complex and increasingly abstract compositions that bring the viewer inside the spiritual energy of the moment. Remember, this was around 1910, and never before had the art world seen such intensely vivid colors and abstracted form as he and the rest of the Expressionists used. The combination of colors, and their dynamic interweaving shapes gives a unique EXPRESSION of the moment that both enlivens and inspires me to dream and reach higher.
