August Macke (1887-1914) was a master of German Expressionism, a movementwhich sprang up in the early 1900s with the intent to forego physical realityin search of its emotional counterpart, with a particular emphasis onexpressing dark moods of tragedy and angst. Macke was a master of color andform, producing eye-catching canvases that evoke a strong sympathetic reactionin the viewer. He was equally at home portraying the sun drenched streets ofTunisia, the cloudy sky around the Bonn cathedral, and the faceless multitudeof a crowded railway station. In this compelling text, Walter Cohen examinesthe brief life of an artist whose seemingly limitless potential was tragicallycut short by his untimely death.
