The comprehensive retrospective shows more than 130 works by the artist, including paintings, drawings and printed graphic works, and honors her largely unknown photographic oeuvre. The Leopold Museum is the first institution in Austria to dedicate a comprehensive exhibition to the work of Gabriele Münter (1877–1962), one of the main exponents of the European avant-garde. Featuring high-quality artworks from international museums and private collections, the exhibition affords insights into the artist’s multi-faceted oeuvre. Münter practiced the most diverse techniques, tried out courageous stylistic changes, and pursued a life-long quest for pure painterly expression. Her path was shaped by enthusiastic moments, occasioned by artistic achievements, but also by personal disappointments and periods of resignation.
