What is the reason why horses are blue, deer are red and cows are yellow in his paintings? Because Franz Marc (1880-1916) did not just want to draw things like they “look like”, but he wanted to draw “what is behind them”. Among other avant-garde artists from the beginning of the 20th century, Marc became a pioneer in modern art in Germany.

Thomas Davida leads us in a journey throughout the friendship between Franz and Macke, the circles associated with the DER BLAUE REITER (“the blue horseman”), throughout happiness and melancholy, his dreams as an artist and his tragic and premature death in Verdun battlefields.

Thomas David

He is fascinated and inspired by the “pure colour”, by the beauty and the shinny sun of the Provenza, and he paints in there “the bridge at Arles”.


Thomas David narrates this great artist’s life and he tells us about the difficult and happiness –few- years of his friendship with Gauguin, about the nostalgia, his crisis, his hallucinations and about his premature and tragic death.


Selected and awarded in Germany as one of the best fiction books for teenagers.


"Thomas David tells us about the artist’s life with a warmth and proximity that is closer to articles and reports, rather than to biographies. It is pleasant, although conscientiously rigorous… and there it is the brilliant visual support, which is the cherry on top in this succulent cake (CLIJ, Children and Young Adult’s Literature Notebooks).
