Paula Modersohn-Becker - part 4

Paula Modersohn-Becker with daughter Elspeth

Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) spent most of her childhood in Bremen, Germany, and decided to become a painter at a young age. After her education at a private painting and drawing school in Berlin, she continued her studies from 1898 at the artist’s colony Worpswede with Fritz Mackensen.

The human form is very much at the centre of Modersohn-Becker’s work; children, old women, and Worpsweder peasants inspired her to undertake portraiture.

For more information on Paula Modersohn-Becker see part 1. For earlier works by Modersohn-Becker, see parts 1-3 also.

This is part 4 of a 5-part post on the works of Paula Modersohn-Becker:
