the events of 1914: “In 1914, Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter had been spending the summer in Murnau when the war broke out. On August 1, they returned to Munich and took an overcrowded train to Lindau on the 3rd, being joined by a sister- in-law of Kandinsky’s, her husband (a justice of the peace), and their daughter. On the 4th they crossed Lake Constance to Rorschach and, on the 6th, arrived at Villa Mariahalde near Goldach on Lake Constance, an empty country house that belonged to their landlady in Munich, The house, which they had to furnish with rented furniture, was anything but comfortable. Work was completely unthinkable. Kandinsky spent his time pondering over questions that he was not to deal with in his writings until much later, in 1926, in Punkt und Linie zu Fläche (Point and Line to Plane).”
