I am a huge fan of Gabriele Munter. In case you don’t know, she’s a trailblazing Expressionist, largely…and unfairly… overshadowed by Kandinsky. When i saw this painting, i was captivated by the stern look of this Mrs. von Hartmann. I’m not sure who she is, or what’s causing her intensity, but I dig the look. This picture is also called “Portrait of a Young Woman.”
This portrait is done in Munter’s characteristic bright, flat treatment, that some say Kandinsky stole. It’s at the Milwaukee Museum of Art.
