Franz Marc (1880 – 1916) was a German Impressionist Painter who was a founding member of the Der Blaue Reiter. This journal included group of artists who formed an expressionism movement in Germany. Most of work involves animals in natural settings as a subject matter, and is characterized by bright primary colors in a cubist style. His works show a strong sense of emotion. His use of color forms a predictable pattern: the color blue was used to portray masculinity and spirituality, yellow was used to represent feminine joy, and red was used to indicate the sound of violence. In his later years, during World War 1, Marc enlisted in the German army and was involved with military camouflage. Our set of Franz Marc patterns includes many of his animal images including Blue Horse 1, The Large Blue Horses, Dead Deer, The Yellow Cow, Blue Black Fox, The Waterfall, Siberian Sheepdogs, Animals in a Landscape, Mandrill, Two Horses in Front of a Red Rock, and The Little Blue Horses. There’s also a self portrait included.
