Artists portrait of August Macke

August Macke

  • Born: 3. January 1887 in Meschede
  • Died: 26. September 1914
Born on January 3rd, 1887 in Meschede the painter August Macke was in his short life able to combine the influences of different pre-war art characteristics info one original style. His encounters with the French Fauve - Matisse and Delaunay - as well as with the Munich painter Franz Marc, strongly influenced his future career. Other important phases were the participation in the artistic group "The Blue Rider" and his Tunis Journey together with Paul Klee and Louis Moilliet. Other than Kandinsky and Marc, he was not striving for abstraction in his art. His paintings maintained concrete forms. His cheerful paintings of parks, zoological gardens and window displays glowed in bold, but harmonic colours. Their brightness further increased after he first saw the light of the African sun during his Tunis Journey in 1914. The main theme of his paintings, though, were people. Macke often brought them to life, simplified and two-dimensional through the poetry of his colours, which were strongly oriented to those of his French painter colleagues. August Macke died at the beginning of World War I on September 26th, 1914 during the invasion of France.
