Paula Modersohn-Becker: An Intensely Artistic Eye

8 April-21 Aug. German painter Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) is the subject of an exhibition comprising almost 100 of her avant-garde paintings and drawings. The exhibition examines the dynamic but all too brief career of the radical German modernist who died aged 31 after giving birth to her first child.

Modersohn-Becker studied in Paris where she came under the influence of painters such as Cézanne, Gauguin and Rosseau, whose modern style she helped introduce to Germany. She is best known for her expressive use of colour and her depictions of women, children and mothers. In 1937 several of the artist's works were included in the Nazis’ Entartete Kunst, or Degenerate Art, exhibition.
