Macke and the Color Stains

Six Paintings. One Concept

We could make this publication thanks to small donations. How is 3 minutos de arte supported?


When we see a work of Macke, we feel attracted by the strength of his synthesis, which the artist gets with a very effective resource —which is influenced by the Orphism of Robert and Sonia Delaunay—: the spaces, the volumes and the luminosity are created from stains of contrasting colors (without delimitation with a black border, as in Cloissonism so much used by Post-impressionists). Colors laid in such a way that also generate movement, dynamism, a burst of life.
