Painting to the Point
Available again in an attractive package and price, this highly regarded monograph celebrates Münter’s important contributions to modern art—beyond her association with the Blue Rider movement.
Filled with the vibrant color that is the hallmark of Münter’s oeuvre, this dynamic consideration of the German painter offers a lively and detailed analysis of her life, work, and contributions to modern painting. While Münter is most often linked to Wassily Kandinsky and the Blue Rider movement, this book offers a refreshing appreciation of her work in its own right.
Multifaceted, imaginative, and stylistically diverse, Münter’s creative output spanned genres to include portraits, landscapes, interiors, and abstractions. Beautifully reproduced images allow readers to marvel at Münter’s joyful vibrant hues, her bold brushstrokes and her experimental and innovative approach to painting. Lively texts offer important biographical insights into her artistic evolution and place her work in the broader context of modern art. Comprehensive and insightful, this newly formatted edition pays tribute to a hugely influential woman artist whose work is all too often overlooked.
