Gabriele Munter Hardback
This dynamic new appraisal of the painter Gabriele M nter looks beyond her association with Wassily Kandinsky and completely reevaluates her art on the anniversary of her 140th birthday.
Gabriele M nter was a photographer before she was a painter, taking her first photos around 1900 during her stay in the United States.
She started painting soon after and never stopped-- working on her art almost every day for the rest of her life.
She was an open-minded artist who embraced experimentation, but because her oeuvre has generally been studied through the narrow lens of her relationship with Kandinsky many of her accomplishments have lingered in obscurity.
M nter's paintings from the "Blue Rider" years and her association with German Expressionism have often been the focus for evaluations of her work, yet M nter's art was far more multifaceted, imaginative, and stylistically diverse.
This book seeks to offer a broader perspective on M nter's creative output.
It examines M nter's oeuvre in all its richness: from classic genres such as portraits and landscapes to interiors, abstractions, and her works of "primitivism."
