Franz Marc paintings are covered in full within this website, which also includes lots of information on the life and career of artist Franz Marc as well.
Franz Marc was part of the expressionist art movement which encouraged a contemporary way of thinking within painting and allowed the emotions of the artist to be displayed in their work.
Other famous expressionists included Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. You can also find Franz Marc paintings here.
The artist sadly had a career shortened by illness but even in this time he managed to create a huge number of paintings that followed a similar style which is instantly recognisable as distinctly Franz Marc.
The painter normally incorporated impressively bright colour combinations onto canvas, normally portraying a selection of common animals such as dogs, tigers and horses.
Franz Marc paintings are exciting and inspiring frenzys of colour which bears similarlity to painters such as Wassily Kandinsky and other expressionists, though Franz Marc's prefered topics of animals in the better known of his paintings set him aside from most others who would typically choose quite different subject matter.
Many in the modern era have found his use of animals to be very charming and the bold colour choices are also highly contemporary.
It was always likely the a young Franz would become a painter as his father had been a respected German landscape painter.
Franz chose to travel across to France in order to take in new influences early on in his career as he sought to avoid having a style which was to mainstream or predictable.
France offered him new ideas and techniques and he spent several years here at the start of 20th century.
