Gabriele Mün­ter (1877–1962) was a cen­tral fig­ure of Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ism and the artist group Der Blaue Re­it­er, 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 one hun­dred 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. Mün­ter is one of the few wo­m­en who played an ear­ly role in de­vel­op­ing mod­er­nism. Her open­ness and willing­ness to ex­per­i­ment as a pain­ter, pho­to­g­ra­pher, and graph­ic artist will now be pre­sent­ed in de­tail for the first time.
