Picasso and Braque famously collaborated to produce cubism. A decade earlier two young German artists enjoyed a similar collaboration. Marc had been painting animals in vivid colours. Responding to his chaotic colourations, Macke joined in. Over just four years they became pioneering abstractionists. Then it all stopped with WW1; by 1916, both had been killed.
