Liegender Stier (Reclining Bull) (detail) — Franz Marc


Tempera on paper; 1913; Museum Folkwang (Folklore Museum); Essen, Germany.

From Wikipedia:

Franz Moritz Wilhelm Marc (February 8, 1880 – March 4, 1916) was a German painter and printmaker, one of the key figures of German Expressionism.

He was a founding member of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), a journal whose name later became synonymous with the circle of artists collaborating in it.

His mature works mostly depict animals, and are known for bright coloration.

He was drafted to serve in the German Army at the beginning of World War I, and was killed in action two years later at the Battle of Verdun.
