There are two things that i always have connected with Gabriele Münter , …..first there is that she was a student of Kandinsky and second, she was great with “behind glass painting”. This is an artist who i have not followed until recently. A week ago I discovered at the bookmarket a catalogue on Gabriele Münter published by the MARLBOROUGH GALLERY from 1960 and the first thing I noticed was the influence of van Gogh . Subject , use of colour and size all reflect that she must have admired van Gogh  immensly and where Kandinsky must have taught her to discover abstract painting, she found herself more at ease with realism in her paintings. Later she became part of the ” BLAUE REITER  group and together with Macke she became a respected name in the history of Modern Art. http://www.ftn-books.com has some nice Gabriele Münter titles available.
