marc three (cats)

thanks de.wikipedia.org (PD:US)
Another piece by my beloved Franz Marc (1880-1916), this time an ink drawing of Drei Katzen ("Three Cats").  I can't come up with a date for this, but it might be around 1911-1913.  That would be before his work became markedly more abstract, though you can perhaps see that starting to happen in the angularity of these tabbies.  The top one reminds me of Elizabeth as a small unsteady kitten.
