Descriptions Franz Marc: The Complete Works, Volume 1

Franz Marc was one of the most important members of the Blue Rider group of painters – this first volume of a three-part catalogue raisonné is devoted to the oil paintings.

This book includes all 244 paintings and is the ultimate reference work for art lovers, art historians and collectors, offering fresh insights into the work of Franz Marc and the Blue Rider group as a whole.

Franz Marc (1880-1916) was one of the most important members of the Blue Rider group of painters, together with other outstanding artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, August Macke, Paul Klee and Alfred Kubin.

The group marked the high point of German Expressionism and had a profound influence on international art during the brief period from its formation to the beginning of the First World War.

The chronology of the paintings has been thoroughly revised and updated and each entry provides details of technique, provenance, exhibitions and literature.

All the paintings are illustrated, most of them in colour. The resulting volume is the ultimate reference work for art lovers, art historians and collectors and offers fresh insights into the work of Franz Marc and the Blue Rider group as a whole.
