Gabriele Münter
Gabriele Münter: Painting to the Point | Isabelle Jansen
1 post | 1 read
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."

This gorgeous coffee table book presents paintings, drawings, photographs (taken on a journey to the US - from New York to Texas - in 1898 to 1900!) by Gabriele Münter and short essays about her work. Münter was a remarkable, adventurous woman and a gifted artist.

The photo is called A Woman in Profile and Münter took it in Arkansas in 1899 or 1900.
