Franz Marc (1880-1916)

Marc was born in Munich, Germany, as the second son of a mother from the Alsace. She gave her children a strict Calvinistic and bilingual (all of Marc's letters are written in French) education and a father, who had studied law, but at his birth worked as a professor in painting at the Munich Academy.

In 1911 and 1912, Marc creates his most famous horse paintings and exhibits, together with Kandinsky, at the Frankfurter Kunstsalon M. Goldschmidt & Co. Marc marries Maria Franck in London, but for legal reasons, this union is not recognized in Germany.
