Awesome Furry Artist!

–Artists who have worked with animal themes are not all contemporary.  One of the best was Franz Marc (1880-1916), whose work The Fox (1913) is shown here.  He was one of the principal painters of the German Expressionist movement, and his work was influenced by futurism and cubism.  Franz Marc also had a strong affinity for the work of Vincent van Gogh.  Most of his mature work portrays animals, usually in natural settings.  His work is characterized by bright primary color, an almost cubist portrayal of animals, stark simplicity, and a profound sense of emotion.  Regretably, Franz Marc was killed in 1916 in World War I.

That Franz Marc was a furry spirit is illustrated in this quote:“I found people ugly very early on; animals seemed to me more beautiful.”

–Two paws up for Franz Marc, and they couldn’t be higher! 😀
