1911 - the same year that Marc founded Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Riders) Group
Marc explained his vision of the colors in 1910, “Blue is the masculine principle, astringent and spiritual. Yellow the female principle, gentle, gay and sensuous. Red is matter, brutal and heavy and always the colour that the other two must oppose and overcome!”
"At least there is a man who can move mountains - and how grandly he has done so; to know this is inexpressively reassuring." - Wassily Kandinsky, a close friend of Marc Franz
Marc Franz looked to the natural world as an "antidote to modern life", from which he felt increasingly alienated. This is why we can find so many paintings of animals in his oeuvre. Especially of horses.
