Franz Marc




December 12, 2009

Institution ArtsConnectEd

The expressionist artists like Franz Marc used colors, shapes, and lines to express their feelings about their subjects. This was a departure from the idea that artist’s create work to imitate nature or to illustrate a literary theme or human emotion. For the first time in history art was created out of an inner necessity on the part of the artist to create it. At the same time psychologists were beginning to suggest that lines, shapes, colors and spaces have specific emotional qualities - they could be joyful or sad, inspiring or depressing.
