"Paula - Mein Leben soll ein Fest sein"
"I know I will not live very long, but is that sad?" Is a feast more beautiful because it is longer? And my life is a feast, a short, intensive ... And if love touches me, before I die, and I will have painted three good pictures, I will gladly part with flowers in my hands and in my hair. "
Paula Becker wrote this in her diary in the summer of 1900 - seven years later she died at the age of 31, shortly after the birth of her first child.

Paula Modersohn-Becker left 750 paintings and about 1,000 drawings and is one of the most important representatives of early expressionism. She started her artistic career, when women at the academies were not welcome. As a modern woman, desiring her freedom and beeing a highly gifted artist, she broke with common conventions in society and art.
