Author: Hoberg, Annegret ; Isabelle Jansen
Price: Not Available
Description: compiled by the Städtische Galerie in Lenbachhaus München. Edited by the Franz Marc Stiftung Kochel am See. London: Philip Wilson, 2011. 29cm., hardcover, 432pp., 1242 color illus. Summary: The third and final volume of the catalogue raisonné includes, along with other material, Marc's thirty-two sketchbooks, which contain the many hundreds of drawings he made - some autonomous, some studies for other work - which together provide profound and important insights into his art. The entries total more than a thousand sketchbook pages, of which over half are reproduced here for the first time, and each in full colour. Many - in particular the famous colourful sheets from his mature years - have been separated from the sketchbooks and are here reunited with details of provenance and present location. The catalogue also contains illustrated entries for his forty-seven prints - the early etchings and lithographs, and the well-known later woodcuts, each entry detailing medium, printer, impressions and, for sheets in museum collections, provenance and location. The individual sections within the catalogue are prefaced with introductory texts that explain the authors' methodology in cataloguing the work. The volume concludes with concordances, a glossary of terms, a bibliography and an index.
