Fighting Forms, Franz Marc
I chose this painting by Franz Marc titled Fighting Forms. It is an oil on canvas and was completed in 1821. The colors of this picture was the first element of art that stood out to me. The artist used a variety of bright and dark colors that come together in a unique way. I also found it fascinating how the artist used lines throughout the picture. Marc's final works were abstract objects, this picture being one of the many he did. I liked how the giant red and black swirls take up the foreground of the picture. They are the largest objects and therefore hold most of the attention in the picture.
