Franz Marc Bewitched Mill Art Shirt
Franz Marc painted The Bewitched Mill following a visit to the Italian town of Merano in 1913. The work's title refers to the magical harmony he sensed there between human life, represented by the houses and mill on the left, and nature, embodied by the lyrical region of trees and animals on the right. The rich abstract print has been hand silk-screened creating an individualized garment - no two are exactly alike! The scoop neck and slightly fitted cut of this art top is flattering and the ultra soft poly/cotton knit fabric is a joy to wear!
Recommended Care: Hand wash or Machine wash this art shirt on Gentle. Cold Water - Mild Detergent - No Bleach. Hang Dry.
