First Monographic Exhibition ever dedicated to Paula Modersohn-Becker in France
Published: 15 July 2016
From 08 April 2016 to 21 August 2016
Until August 21, 2016, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris will be putting on display the first monographic exhibition ever dedicated to the German painter Paula Modersohn-Becker in France.
Paula Modersohn-Becker was born on February 8, 1876, in Friedrichstadt, a neighborhood in central Dresden, Germany. Though she is not well known in France, Becker is considered one of the major figures of the early 20th-century modernist movement, Expressionism.
In 1900, at the age of 24, she moved to Paris and started studying at the Académie Colarossi art school, in the Latin Quarter. She was inspired by many leading artists who marked her era such as Rodin, Picasso, Douanier Rousseau, and Henri Matisse. However, her career was not too long as she passed away, on November 21, 1907.
The exhibition Paula Modersohn-Becker at the Musée d’Art Moderne features around 100 paintings by the artist accompanied by excerpts from her letters and diaries.
Self-portraits are also on display, with a great emphasis on the female identity.
Paula Modersohn-Becker is curated by Julia Garimorth.
The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is at a short walking distance from Hotel Cambon.
