The painting Three Fabulous Beasts by Franz Marc is a masterpiece of German expressionism that has captivated art lovers since its creation in 1913. This work is one of the most representative of the artist, who stood out for his ability to capture nature and the animals in their works.

The composition of the painting is impressive, with three majestic animals that appear to be in motion. The elephant, the tiger and the wild boar are represented with great strength and energy, which makes the work very dynamic. In addition, the choice of animals is not by chance, since each of them represents a different quality: the elephant symbolizes strength, the tiger ferocity and the boar cunning.

The use of color in the painting is another highlight. Franz Marc used bright, saturated colors to represent the animals, giving them a strong presence in the work. Additionally, the artist used complementary colors to create a visual contrast that makes the painting even more striking.

The story behind the painting is also interesting. Franz Marc created this work at a time when he was deeply concerned about war and violence in the world. The choice of animals as the main theme of the work can be seen as a criticism of human violence and a call for peace and harmony.

Lastly, there is a little-known aspect of painting that is worth mentioning. Franz Marc had originally planned to include a fourth animal in the work: a unicorn. However, he decided to remove it as he felt the unicorn was too symbolic and did not fit with the realistic nature of the other animals.
