Early graphic work by Franz Marc (February 8, 1880 – March 4, 1916) noted German painter and printmaker, one of the key figures of the German Expressionist movement. He was a founding member of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider), a journal whose name later became synonymous with the circle of artists collaborating in it. A strikingly Art Nouveau image, on white handmade paper, in 1904 (image size slightly less than 3 x 3 inches). still quite objective and arrested in Art Nouveau. On verso of bookplate is the printer stamp, SH. This comes from the estate of a printer of the Steglitzer Werkstatte, where Marc had at least this (and the example following) ex-libris bookplate printed. The printer was founded in 1900 by Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke, Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens and Georg Belwe. Fine. Most scarce. (Inventory #: 3628)
