The artists’ colony of Tervuren (Flanders, Belgium) was founded in de woods near Brussels around 1860, after the colony of Barbizon (France). Freeing themselves from academic restrictions, young Belgian artists like Camille Van Camp (who also worked in Domburg in The Netherlands), Joseph Coosemans, Jules Montigny and in particular Hippolyte Boulenger painted their surroundings en plein air.
In 1908, after a journey through Europe and North Africa, the artists Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinsky, members of the first modernistic association, the Neue Künstlervereinigung München (NKVM), first came to Murnau a. Staffelsee, together with Marianne von Werefkin and Alexej Jawlensky. They enjoyed their stay and felt inspired by the beautiful landscape.
