Condemned by the Nazis as a degenerate artist, Franz Marc (1880-1916) was a German painter whose stark linearity and emotive use of color eloquently expressed the pain and trauma of war. In work such as his celebrated Fate of the Animals, Marc created a raw emotional expression of primitive violence which he called a premonition of the war which would eventually be the cause of his own untimely death at the age of 36.

August Macke (1887-1914) was a master of German Expressionism, a movement which sprang up in the early 1900s with the intent to forego physical reality in search of its emotional counterpart, with a particular emphasis on expressing dark moods of tragedy and angst. Macke was a master of color and form, producing eye-catching canvases that evoke a strong sympathetic reaction in the viewer. He was equally at home portraying the sun drenched streets of Tunisia, the cloudy sky around the Bonn cathedral, and the faceless multitude of a crowded railway station. In this compelling text, Walter Cohen examines the brief life of an artist whose seemingly limitless potential was tragically cut short by his untimely death.

An emblematic figure of the early 20th century, Paul Klee participated in the expansive Avant-Garde movements in Germany and Switzerland. From the vibrant Blaue Reiter movement to Surrealism at the end of the 1930s and throughout his teaching years at the Bauhaus, he attempted to capture the organic and harmonic nature of painting by alluding to other artistic mediums such as poetry, literature, and, above all, music. While he collaborated with artists like August Macke and Alexej von Jawlensky, his most famous partnership was with the abstract expressionist, Wassily Kandinsky.

Animal expressions: Franz Marc's search for a universal art Franz Marc (1880-1916) became known principally for his images of animals: blue horses, yellow tigers, red fawns. What was it that led him to concentrate on painting animals? Marc himself explained his choice of subject matter in these words: "From an early date I felt humankind to be 'ugly'; animals seemed to me possessed of a greater beauty and purity..." Seeing Marc merely as a painter of animals proves, however, premature. Marc, cofounder of the Blauer Reiter group of Expressionist artists, was deeply dissatisfied with the impurity of the world, and was on a quest for a universal art which would resolve the contrarieties of life in the harmony of creation. Using pure colors highly charged with symbolic values, adopting crystalline shapes, and absorbing the influence of Cubism, he moved steadily towards an abstract order of image, coming closer to his own understanding of a better world. At the age of 36, Franz Marc's life was cut short when he died in the Battle of Verdun.

Paul Klee gehört zu den Künstlern, die sich nur schwerlich einer bestimmten kunstgeschichtlichen Bewegung zuordnen lassen. In engem Kontakt mit Wassily Kandinsky und Franz Marc gehörte er wie diese der expressionistischen Künstlergruppe Der Blaue Reiter an. Später knüpfte er Verbindungen zum Bauhaus und unterrichtete sogar Malerei an der Dessauer Schule. Seiner Ansicht nach ging es bei der Kunst keineswegs um die Produktion, sondern vielmehr darum, die Dinge äußerst sichtbar werden zu lassen. In seinen Gemälden vereinte Klee geschickt die zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts vorherrschenden Tendenzen. Er führte kubistische und orphistische Elemente in den deutschen Expressionismus ein und verlieh seinen eigenen Werken eine surrealistische und melancholische Poesie. Der Autor führt uns hier die Wunder der Klee’schen Welt vor Augen, in der jeder Pinselstrich die Macht der Farben bestätigt.
