Gabriele Münter

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk

3 May - 19 Aug 2018

Münter’s work is usually seen in the context of German Expressionism, focusing on her relationship with Wassily Kandinsky and her role as a founding member of Der Blaue Reiter in the early 1910s. This exhibition – the first major survey of Münter’s work in several decades – places the oil paintings from this era alongside lesser-known aspects of her oeuvre, including her early forays as a photographer around 1900, her glass paintings, and a range of works on paper. It spans Münter’s entire 60-year career to reveal the full breadth of her experimentation, moving from classic genres such as portrait and landscape to her interest in foreign cultures, folk art and children’s drawings. Find out more about the Gabriele Münter exhibition from the Louisiana Museum’s website.
