Franz Marc: The Exceptional Condition

Head of a Dead Horse, 1907-08
Franz Marc has always been a favorite painter. His belief in abstraction and his ability to fuse his life and art serve as a guide to sympathetic artists. This post offers examples of his work and writings taken from the excellent introduction to his painting and philosophy: Franz Marc by Mark Rosenthal. The book is available here.
Creation I, 1914
Siberian Sheepdogs (Siberian Dogs in the Snow), 1909-10
Nude with Cat, 1910
Van Gogh is for me the most authentic, the greatest, the most poignant painter I know. To paint a bit of the most ordinary nature, putting all one's faith and longings into it- that is the supreme achievement...Now I paint...only the simplest things... Only in them are the symbolism, the pathos, and the mystery of nature to be found.
Horse in the Landscape, 1910
Two Horses, Red and Blue, 1912
Playing Dogs, ca. 1912
The Little Yellow Horses, 1912
I am trying to enhance my sensibility for the organic rhythm that I feel is in all things...
Rain, 1912

Artist and friend Juan Hinojosa has added a new blog to his website that promises to be an "extension of my website. Please enjoy the many photos of my art making process, things that inspire me, and random things I think are cool. Plus anything orange."
The vibrant and timely collage based installations demand attention.  View more here. A link can be found in the sidebar under Blogs I Follow
