Farewell - August Macke

We just learned about the famous work of art The Tower of Blue Horses by German artist Franz Marc.

Another famous work of art is Farewell by German artist August Macke in 1914.

Macke was part of a group of artists called Der Blaue Reiter who worked together to make art that used strong colors and shapes, was exciting and had meaning behind it but didn't look like a picture of real people.

His painting Farewell was made when World War I started, and it shows the sadness of people because of the war.
