Franz Marc: 1880-1916. Originally painting as an academic, he altered his style after exposure to van Gogh, the Impressionists, Jugendstil and Jean Boe Niestle, a Swiss animalier who inspired Marc's lifelong fascination with animals. Marc evolved a vocabulary of symbolic shapes and colors that reflected his belief in an underlying, unifying spirit in nature. He was killed at Verdun. (Shane Weller)
