Paula Modersohn-Becker

Data de nascimento: 8. Fevereiro 1876
Data de falecimento: 30. Novembro 1907

Paula Modersohn-Becker foi uma pintora alemã, e uma das representantes mais precoces do movimento expressionista no seu país.

Paula Becker comprometeu-se em estudos de pintura e reuniu artistas independentes na povoação de Worpswede, próxima de Bremen, que predicava um retorno à natureza e aos valores simples dos camponeses. Ali se casou com o paisagista Otto Modersohn. A falta de audácia dos pintores de Worpswede, empurraram-na a usar inspirações exteriores e a efetuar repetidas estadias em Paris.

Os quatorze curtos anos durante os quais Paula Modersohn-Becker exerceu a sua arte permitiram-lhe realizar pelo menos setecentos cinquenta quadros, treze estampas e perto de um milhar de desenhos. O seu estilo, particularmente único e original, é o fruto de múltiplas influências, aos confins da tradição e da modernidade. A sua pintura apresenta aspectos que misturam o impressionismo de Cézanne ou Gauguim, o cubismo de Picasso, o fauvismo, a arte japonesa e o renascimento alemão. A força expressiva da sua obra resume os principais aspectos da arte nos primórdios do século XX. Paula Modersohn-Becker faleceu aos trinta e um anos. Atualmente, a artista, é pouco conhecida para além dos países de língua alemã.

Citações Paula Modersohn-Becker

„In my first year of marriage I have often wept and the tears fall often as they did in my childhood - in large drops. They occur when I hear music and when I see beautiful things which move me. In the last analysis, I live alone just as much as I did in my childhood. This aloneness makes me sometimes sad and sometimes happy. I believe it deepens one's life. One lives less according to outward appearances... One lives inwardly.“

„The Journal of Marie Bashkirtseff. Her thoughts enter my bloodstream and make me very sad. I say as she doers: if only I could accomplish something! My existence seems humiliating to me. We don't have the right to strut around, not until we've made something of ourselves.“

„There are great many Rembrandts here [in Paris]. Even if they are yellow with varnish, I can still learn so much from them, the wrinkled intricacy of things, life itself. There is a little thing here by him.... It is of a women in bed, nude. But the way it's painted, the way the cushions are painted, their shapes, with all those details of lacework, the whole thing is bewitching.“
