Collecting folksy reverse glass paintings and the connected occupation with a style focused on contours, had a liberating effect on Gabriele Münter'spainting style. She left a period of late Impressionist tone painting behind her, also under the influence of Wassily Kandinsky, and chose the clearly contoured form as carrier of the color. It is not the outmost differentiate color degrees that characterized her works from that point on, but the expressive value of compact forms. This decisive step into a new period of her creation became manifest during her first years in Murnau as of 1908. Gabriele Münter consistently pursued her style and even adhered to it during the difficult 1930s and 1940s. From the three great topic fields that characterized Münter's creation- landscape, still life and portrait – it is the first that best allowed her to realize her ideas. This is where the artist made a great contribution to Modern Art in Germany.
