Franz Marc. Drawings, Watercolours, Gouaches
30 September 2018 - 17 February 2019

Franz Marc's graphic work, supplemented by his watercolours and gouaches, is of considerable diversity. In addition to the numerous sheets in his sketchbooks are his drawings and watercolours, created in their own right, especially in the two years before World War I, which equate to his paintings in format, execution and importance. Franz Marc's pleasure at experimenting, his differentiated powers of observation, the confidence in each line and his quest for abstract simplification are revealed in his drawings. Marc's works on paper allow his development towards the autonomy of colour to be better understood, as well as his richly nuanced and self-assured feeling for colour. The exhibition, showing all the works on paper owned by the Franz Marc Museum, is the first in a series of presentations that open up a view of the depot. They accompany preparations for a new catalogue on the museum's collections that will be published in 2019.
