Item description for Wassily Kandinsky And Gabriele Munter: Letters And Reminiscences, 1902-1914 (Pegasus Library) by Annegret Hoberg...
One of the art world's most poignant love stories comes to life in this fascinating book.
The tumultuous love affair between Wassily Kandinsky and Gabriele Mnter is a story of happiness and pain, trust and betrayal, harmony and conflict, set against the backdrop of the revolutionary upheavals that attended the birth of Modernism. The fascinating story of their life in the Bavarian countryside, where they were a part of the Blue Rider group, and the underlying tensions that eventually drove them apart, is told in letters, diary entries and memoirs, and in superb reproductions of the artists' finest paintings and sketches. This book traces the development of the couple's personal and artistic relationship from 1902 through 1914 when Kandinsky fled Germany and returned to his native Russia, before finally abandoning Mnter in 1917. It shows how their relationship, though ill-fated, marked a hugely prolific period in the careers of both painters and the development of the German Expressionist movement.
