Paula Modersohn-Becker Exhibit in Copenhagen

December 5, 2014 to April 4, 2015 German painter Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) is the subject of a major exhibition — the first of its kind in Scandinavia — comprising about 100 paintings and 40 drawings. The exhibition examines the dynamic but all too brief career of the radical German modernist who died aged 31 after giving birth to her first child. Modersohn-Becker studied in Paris where she came under the influence of painters such as Cézanne and Gauguin, whose modern style she helped introduce to Germany. She is best known for her depictions of the female figure, and her representations of women, children and mothers.
