Franz Born is a German painter born in 1881 in Frankfurt. His father, Franz Jakob Bourne, was a sculptor and made the famous fountain in Wiesbaden. He studied painting in Munich in 1904/5 with Professor Fritz Hausmann, and then in Berlin with the famous Louis Corinth. He moved to the Schwalenberg district and is a member of that school of painting. During the First World War he was sent as a soldier to Macedonia where he contracted malaria and died in 1917. He is buried in the German cemetery in Bitola, a monument that is unfortunately forgotten by the Macedonian public.

About Me

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
