Lenbachhaus Munich
Luisenstraße 33
September 17, 2005–January 8, 2006

Curated by Annegret Hoberg

The Lenbachhaus is home to a major collection of Blaue Reiter art and is sponsor of the monumental Franz Marc catalogue raisonné. It is thus the ideal venue for what will be the largest retrospective of Marc’s work since the commemorative exhibition that followed his death in 1916. Nearly one hundred canvases and even more works on paper, sculptures, and design materials—some never before exhibited—provide an opportunity to consider Marc’s development chronologically and thematically. Special attention will be paid, of course, to his coloristic expression of spiritual concerns and his totemic treatment of animals. Annegret Hoberg, who has edited the accompanying catalogue, is also the author of the catalogue raisonné, the final volume of which will be published to coincide with the exhibition.
