Paula Modersohn-Becker

Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-02-08 - 1907-11-21), a German painter, was one of the most important representatives of early Expressionism.


  • Our German art is bogged down in the conventional... I think more highly of a free person who consciously puts convention aside.
  • I am to express..the unconscious feeling that often murmurs so softly and sweetly within me.
  • I want to give colours intoxication,fullness,excitement,power by trying to forget Impressionism.
