August Macke Wall Art -

August Macke is best known for his early 20th-century post-impressionist paintings. His primary subject matter are landscapes, portraits and still life. He became associated with the second generation of the abstract expressionists. The earliest work, from 1907 to 1910, shows a linear geometric style with a subdued palette and fugitive, flickering light. In 1909 he met Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and formed an association that lasted until 1914. Together they painted rural scenes of eastern Germany. The pair broke up permanently in 1920 when Macke married Magdalena Mauter.
