Description - Sketchbook from the Battlefield by Franz Marc
Franz Marc's famous 'Sketchbook from the Battlefield' contains thirty-six small-format pencil drawings that were produced between March and June 1915 - just a few months before the artist's death in March 1916. These precious sheets, which are among the last works produced by Marc, are his artistic legacy. In spite of their miniature scale, the sketches are among the greatest creations of drawing in the twentieth century. They mark the beginning of an age, and yet their Promethean energy points to the future. Delicately lyrical elements in them are linked with a deep constructivist spirit that does not only reflect the avant-garde of the new century, but even today, one hundred years later, has not lost any of its startling modernity. AUTHOR: Franz Marc (1880-1916) was a famous German artist. His great popularity and fascination for his art continues until today. 36 colour
