Best-known for her colourful, expressionist landscapes and her graphic portraits, as well as for her relationship with Wassily Kandinsky, Münter deserves to be remembered in her own right, as this expansive exhibition makes clear.

Trend-spotting is over, but lacking, too, was the buzz. In the end, what ABMB brought to fair-goers was less an agglomeration of work for sale than an indelible, fully sensory experience of art.
