The painter August Macke (1887-1914) made a trip to Tunisia in the spring of 1914 together with his artist colleagues Paul Klee and Louis Moilliet. This trip plunged the three painters into a real creative frenzy. For Macke, this trip to North Africa was also to be the artistic climax of his short life, which ended in early autumn of the same year.

Macke spoke enthusiastically about his African environment as the most beautiful of all, more beautiful than the fragrant Provence: the trip to Tunisia flooded the inspiration and energy of the three painters. While Louis Moillet came home with 14 different works and Paul Klee with 48 drawings and watercolours, Macke had 79 drawings, 33 watercolours and many photographs in his luggage: the trip to Tunisia became an established art historical concept. Macke, Klee and Moilliet immersed themselves in a mysterious wonderland: the flair of Tunis, the medina, the Arabic tangle of languages, old buildings from Greek and Roman times, dromedaries as beasts of burden and Berbers in their traditional, waving robes - all this had fascinated August Macke. But he was particularly impressed by the simple people and their way of life, which he immortalised in many sketches, watercolours and photographs.

The flood of impressions must have put August Macke in an almost ecstatic state - he made one sketch after another: House roofs and views out of the window, small cubic and light yellow painted houses with blue shutters are captured by August Macke in two-dimensional, radiantly bright pictures. The highly sensitive artist feels the colours and light of Tunisia almost physically and describes them as "clear and colourful like a church window". An exotic charm and the very special light of North Africa had already attracted many other artists to Tunisia before Macke and his friends. Early Impressionists were fascinated by the endless expanses of the deserts, the buildings and the high sky over Africa. Thus Pierre Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet had visited Algeria, Wassily Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter had also visited Tunisia. Wassily Kadinssky published alongside Franz Marc under the synonym "The Blue Rider" as important pioneers of modern art of the 20th century. The inspiration for Macke, Klee and Moilliet's trip to Tunisia was to come from this group of artists.

He had wanderlust for a long time: born in 1887 in Meschede, Sauerland, Macke graduated from the Academy of Arts in Düsseldorf and took courses at the School of Arts and Crafts. He designed costumes and decorations before he went on journeys to Belgium, Italy, France, Holland and Switzerland, in order to be able to gather ever new artistic impressions - and so it came to the journey to Tunis, Hammamet and Kairouan. In Tunis unique pictures were created: Macke and Klee turned away from traditional painting styles in order to devote themselves more to the expressionist and cubist developments of abstraction and simplification. This is why Macke today stands for the art of Expressionism. The trip to Tunis had become the absolute highlight of his artistic work. At the end of the trip, the twenty-seven-year-old had to go to the First World War as a soldier. August Macke's life came to an abrupt end on 26 September 1914. He fell at Perthes-les-Hurlus in Champagne. © Meisterdrucke
