TKC 24



German expressionism, and specifically the “Blaue Reiter” group, has been one of the first periods in art that I was shown when I was a child by my mother in the Lenbachhaus in Munich and at other exhibitions. One person that I had wrongly memorized mainly as Kandinsky’s wife – but who actually – was a formidable, inspiring artist and a leader at the heart of the group, is Gabriele Muenter. When visiting family in Vienna I had the pleasure to explore her works in a dedicated exhibition in the Albertina. What a joy of color, emotion and technique. I am grateful this exhibition has reset my understanding of the group and the critical role of Gabriele Muenter, not finally receiving the acclaim she deserves.
