Gabriele Münter and the age of Modernist Society

Silvia Wistuba

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract


Gabriele Münter was a German Expressionist painter of the early 20th century who, until this century, was better known as the student/muse/mistress of Wassily Kandinsky, who has been acknowledged as the master of abstraction by the patriarchal artworld. This presentation will focus on Münter's development as an artist from the late 19th century to the beginning of World War One in 1914, and discusses the prejudices and discrimination she faced from a society resistant to moral change.
