A style of his own: The colorful work of a truly avant-garde
painterIn the course of his short life, German painter August Macke
(1887--1914) combined inspirations from extremely different sources
into a unique and personal style. Macke was engaged with the world,
closely following the development of abstract art and at the same
time feeling tied to the Blauer Reiter movement of Munich. Macke
developed a "flat" yet ornamental style, but always remained true
to objective representation. His cheerful scenes of parks, zoos,
and promenades with shop windows are filled with bold yet
harmonious colors. Their brilliance reached its zenith in 1914 when
he traveled with Klee and Moilliet to Tunis and became acquainted
with the light of the African sun.About the series: Each book in
