Essay
After the outbreak of World War I Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinsky initially moved to Switzerland, after they had broken up they met again in Stockholm in 1915, where Münter met the circle of avant-gardeartists around Sigrid Hjertén, which, influenced by Matisse, were experimentingwith a decorative sensitivity in cool colors. In those days she developed an entirely new style that showed strong influences of her Swedish artist colleagues. Strong color values and soild forms, characteristic of her days with the "Blaue Reiter" give way to more pastel colors, almost amorphic forms and a disaggregation of the composition. The trees in the landscape with the yellow house are almost filigree, Münter placed both the cyclist as well as the yellow house at the edge of the scene. The interplay of forms is still visible, however, it shows an increased sensitivity. It was the year that Münter finally broke up withKandinsky, whose influence on her art can be observed in this work, he also had made his palette subject to a new direction, showing similar features. But Münter remained autonomous in her art, staying true to herself, also in this difficult period. With new means and experience she created a landscape in her own style and expression.
