February 2030 - 150 years since the Birth of Franz Marc
Franz Marc (8 February 1880 – 4 March 1916) was a German painter and printmaker, and one of the key figures of the German Expressionist movement.

He commented on his own work in a letter to his wife Maria on 12th April 1915: "The heathen human (most of all the male of the species) is not appealing to my true feelings, animals' awareness of life on the other hand, awakens in me everything that is good. Animals inspire in me an instinct for abstract ideas ....".

With the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Marc was drafted into the German Army as a cavalryman. He was struck in the head and killed instantly by a shell splinter during the Battle of Verdun in 1916.
