DESCRIPTION

A cooperation with the Franz Marc Museum in Kochel am See (D) and the Moitzburg Foundation in Halle (D).

The exhibition was created in close collaboration with the Franz Marc Museum in Kochel and the Moritzburg Foundation in Halle and presents this richly-facetted dialogue structured into themes, and examines the most important components: the illustrated letters and postcards, projects planned together such as the Bible illustrations or the Candide drawings by Paul Klee, as well as a series of important aquarelles created in the process of analysing the colour theories of Robert Delaunay.

The climax of the exhibition presents, alongside the illustrated postcards, the animal pictures by Franz Marc, the modern animal painter par excellence. Like no other artist he used the techniques of modern painting to approach the «soul» of the animals and the utopia of a paradisian world. Horses, deer, sheep, bulls become models of originality and purity in Marc’s expressive, colourful painting.
