The Age of Picasso and Matisse (Take Two)

The ticket's detailing looks like something out of the early 1980s. Computer World, indeed. A simple arti-fact.
This one by Franz Marc jumps out of the wall as you approach ~ Die verzauberte Mühle / The Bewitched Mill ~ completed in 1913, exactly one hundred years ago. How many enchanted animals can you make out in there?

Poor Franz was killed at Verdun in 1916, during the Great War, at age thirty-six.

Something about the people made of square planes always gets me in this kind of painting.
