This exhibition presents German artist Gabriele Münter’s photographs along with a selection taken by her companion Vasily Kandinsky, recording the years they lived, traveled, and worked together between 1902 and 1914. Through her camera’s lens, Münter captured private moments in their studio in Munich, the garden of their house in Murnau, and their travels through Europe and northern Africa, as well as collective portraits taken with colleagues and friends, including the artists of Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) at the time of their first group exhibition of 1911–12. These documentary images offer a fascinating glimpse into Münter’s and Kandinsky’s personal and public lives.
