An Introduction to German Artist August Macke

August Macke was a German artist known for his distinct style and contributions to the Expressionist movement. Born in 1887, he attended the Royal Academy of Art in Düsseldorf before leaving to pursue more experimental styles. In 1910, Macke's paintings began to show signs of innovation as he became involved in the Expressionist movement. Macke's work captured emotion and spirituality rather than realistic detail. Macke was killed at the age of 27 during the early months of World War I.
