Exhibition catalogue Gabriele Münter. Painting to the Point, presented at Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau, München, Allemagne (October 31, 2017 – April 8, 2018).

Gabriele Münter 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.

Münter’s paintings from the "Blue Rider" years and her association with German Expressionism have often been the focus for evaluations of her work, yet Münter’s art was far more multifaceted, imaginative, and stylistically diverse.

This book seeks to offer a broader perspective on Münter’s creative output. It examines Münter’s oeuvre in all its richness: from classic genres such as portraits and landscapes to interiors, abstractions, and her works of "primitivism."
