GABRIELE MÜNTER | DIE VERGESSENEN
Gabriele Münter was born in 1877 in Berlin, Germany and died in 1962 in Murnau am Staffelsee, Germany. Münter studied drawing at the Düsseldorf Ladies’ Art School from 1897. She moved to Munich in 1901, where she began studying art. Her early works, mostly landscape studies were oriented towards the Impressionist style. She developed her artistic autonomy as a member of the group “Der blaue Reiter”. In 1908, Münter and Kandinsky, met and fell in love during their studies in Munich, and moved together to Murnau in Upper Bavaria. Kandinsky had a lasting influence on Münter’s art during and after their relationship. In Murnau she mainly produced paintings of the Upper Bavarian landscape, changing her expressive style from Impressionist to Expressionist painting. From 1916, Münter was in exile in Sweden, where she mainly produced fine-line etchings. Back in Germany in the 1920s, Münter concentrated almost exclusively on depicting people in her prints. Here she used the technique of lithography, which made it possible to optimise drawings as directly as possible. In 1931 she moved again to Murnau, where she produced her important late work with landscapes and still life’s in the Expressionistic style. In Münter’s last creative period, her depictions leaned towards the flow of Abstract Expressionism.
