Book of the Week: Paula Modersohn–Becker

Considered one of the most important of the early German modernists, the painter Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-–1907) challenged traditions of representations of the female body in art.

With her subdued, earthy palette and surfaces of thick impasto, Modersohn-Becker avoided conventional beauty. Discarding any hint of idealization, her female figures, whose sturdy bodies are often posed awkwardly, make no overtures to the viewer.

This book is an authoritative source on Modersohn-Becker, the first significant woman artist in the history of modernism.
