Gabriele Munter: The Years of Expressionism, 1903-1920 (Prestel Art). Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: The work of Gabriele Munter (1877-1962) shines like a jewel in the male-dominated avant-garde Expressionist movement. Most accounts of the frenetically creative years in Munich and Murnau fail to recognize the uniqueness of Munter's vision: her work is unjustly eclipsed by that of her colleagues, not least Vassily Kandinsky's. This book redresses the balance. Some one hundred of the artist's most seminal works are reproduced in this lavishly illustrated volume; they include several from private collections that have never before been published. "Gabriele Munter: The Years of Expressionism, 1903-1920" is an exploration of Munter's crucial contribution to German Expressionism in the genres of landscape, portrait and still-life painting. Her place and significance in the development of this movement are critically examined, with particular attention paid to the iconography of her paintings and the lyrical strength of her work.
From Library Journal:
Excellent and well written, this is the first English-language survey in depth of the bittersweet life and independent oeuvre of the pioneering Blue Rider artist Munter (1877-1962). She was first a student of and then a longtime artist/companion to Kandinsky, and her drawings, prints, and paintings deserve this wider recognition. (The monograph serves also as a catalog to 82 works traveling to four venues in the United States.) Only a few of the works here border on abstraction, but the artist led her colleagues to admiration for Bavarian folk art. Her technique, a synthesizing naturalism based on the scaffolding of deft, rapid draftsmanship, is a sort of shorthand cloisonne of glowing, saturated colors depicting still lifes, interiors, landscapes, and several remarkable, perhaps comic, deadpan portraits. Scholars should also consult Shulamith Behr's short essay on Munter in Delia Gaze's Dictionary of Women Artists (Fitzroy Dearborn, 1997). Highly recommended.?Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Towson Univ., Millersville, MD
