The Search For Franz Marc’s “Horses”

It has been missing since the end of the Second World War, but one of the greatest German Expressionist paintings may have survived, hidden away in Russia. Franz Marc’s “The Tower of Blue Horses” (1913) has not been seen in public since a Nazi exhibition of “degenerate” art in Munich in 1937, but the curators of two shows opening in Germany this month believe that the picture could well survive. They are organising their exhibitions in homage to the missing masterpiece and also in the hope of raising public awareness of the painting’s disappearance. Details.
