Item description for Gabriele Munter: The Search for Expression 1906-1917 by Annegret Hoberg...
Gabriele Mnter (1877-1962) played a vital role in the development of German Expressionism in the early years of the 20th century. She was at the forefront of a group of highly influential avant-garde artists---including her lover, Wassily Kandinsky---who redirected the course of German modernism and shaped Expressionist aesthetics. Mnter was a founding member both of the progressive artists' association, the Neue Kunstlervereinigung Munchen (NKVM), and the celebrated avant-garde group, der Blaue Reiter (the Blue Rider).
Gabriele Mnter: The Search for Expression 1906-1917 focuses on 20 important paintings from the most intensively creative period of her career and illustrates some 30 other works by her. Essays introduce this remarkable woman and her art and discuss her gendered role as an avant-garde artist in the first phase of modernism.
