"I am trying to heighten my feeling for the organic rhythm in all things, trying to establish a pantheistic contact with the tremor and flow of blood in nature, in animals, in the air – trying to make it all into a picture, with new movements and with colours that reduce our old easel paintings to absurdity." ~ Franz Marc
Is there any more mysterious idea for an artist than the conception of how nature is mirrored in the eyes of an animal? How does a horse see the world, or an eagle, or a doe, or a dog?
~ Franz Marc
Love these quotes by Franz Marc, which is your favorite of the two?
Marc was Fauvist. Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (French for "the wild beasts") My Art school never revealed that he was really trying to connect with the nature and the source of all life!
