August Macke: Self-portrait.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:August_Macke_042.jpg

He produced some beautiful work, and his above self-portrait should demonstrate even to the ARC that his simplified style was by choice and not because he couldn't draw. Might have been interesting to see where his work might have gone had his country not decided he was more useful dead in the trenches than behind an easel...

Re: Mm2047

Agree with you 100% Brian.

For those who don't know, Macke was killed during the very first days of WWI.
