Three years after Münter and Wassily Kandinsky, who was still married at the time, got engaged, they traveled together to Tunisia, the Netherlands, Italy and in 1906/1907 to Paris. Neither of them were impressed by the French painters. She remembered: “When I was in Sèvres with K. [andinsky] in 1906-07, K.[andinsky] didn’t look for Matisse, Picasso o.[der] the other greats.” However, she discovered wood and Linocuts that she perfected together with Kandinsky. A quarter of her graphic work was thus created in France.
