About Tiger

The artwork titled “Tiger” was created by the artist Franz Marc in the year 1912. This piece is a woodcut on paper, exemplifying the Expressionist art movement. It measures 19.9 by 23.9 cm and falls within the wildlife painting genre. You can find this artwork at the St├Ądtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus in Munich.

The artwork depicts a tiger in an abstract style, which is characteristic of the Expressionist movement. The woodcut shows the tiger in a dynamic, curled pose, emphasizing the animal’s form through angular, sweeping lines and stark contrasts. Rather than aiming for realistic representation, the artwork captures the essence of the tiger and conveys a sense of the animal’s spirit and the wildness of nature through its bold, simplified forms and expressive lines. The use of negative space and the play between light and dark areas create a sense of depth and movement, drawing the viewer into the scene. The overall composition reflects Franz Marc’s interest in depicting nature and animals with an emotional intensity that goes beyond the visual appearance, seeking to resonate with the inner experience of the subject.
