This is a poster I picked up when I first moved into my new apartment. I love the colours, and the movement.

Franz Marc, German Expressionist (not Impressionist)

In December 1910 he wrote a famous letter to [August] Macke, assigning emotional values to colours:
Blue is the male principle, astringent and spiritual. Yellow is the female principle, gentle, gay and spiritual. Red is matter, brutal and heavy and always the colour to be opposed and overcome by the other two.
I don't agree with his assessment of colours, but that's just my opinion. :)



Blue Horse (1911)



Deer in the Woods II (1912)

This painting of the woods looks like an oil painting I purchased at an auction. I'll take a photo of it sometime and show you, :)

Red Horses (for a certain someone)
