Biography - Modersohn-Becker, Paula
(m ´d rz n´´-b k´ r) (KEY) , 1876–1907, German painter. After studying in London and Berlin, she was greatly influenced by her experience at Worpswede, an artists’ colony where she lived from 1898 to 1900. There she met Otto Modersohn, whom she married, and the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Rilke wrote a biography of Modersohn-Becker; she painted a portrait of Rilke. At first, she painted mainly landscapes, but then she turned to portraits and still lifes.
See study by G. Perry (1979).
