Art Book Club: Saving Kandinsky, by Mary Basson
June 9, 2022
Join CMA Executive Director Nannette Maciejunes for Art Book Club. Every Art Book Club includes a conversation with Nannette. Art Book Club selections are available for purchase in the Museum Store.
As they paint together on the Bavarian mountainside, young Gabriele Münter falls in love with her married teacher, Wassily Kandinsky. While their illicit love faces the disapproval of early 20th century European society, the two artists forge a partnership that will offer the world its first taste of Abstract Expressionism. Gabriele Münter's life is a tale of courage in the face of personal and historical crisis. Saving Kandinsky
is her story.
Art Book Club is $5 for nonmembers and free for members, the virtual zoom session is free for everyone.
