Life and work of the artist Paula Modersohn-Becker
Look forward to portraits, portraits of children, landscapes, still lifes and, again and again, self-portraits by this exceptional artist.
"What a pity." - With these words, the painter Paula Modersohn-Becker, only 31 years old, died in Worpswede near Bremen in 1907. At the time, hardly anyone understood how important her work was.
She was a pioneer of modernism and the first artist in the world to have an entire museum dedicated to her. Her adopted home was the artists' colony Worpswede, and it was there in the provinces - and inspired by many trips to Paris - that she developed her trend-setting style.
