Gabriele Münter, Head of a Young Boy (Willi Blab), 1908.
Gabriele Münter (1877–1962) was a central figure of German Expressionism and the Blue Rider artist group, which was founded at Münter’s house in Murnau. Her role as a dedicated proponent, mediator, and longtime companion of Wassily Kandinsky is well known and recognized. This exhibition demonstrates Gabriele Münter’s importance and independence as a painter: with more than 120 paintings, including works from her estate that will be presented to the public for the first time, it will offer a new look at this strong artist.
