They only gradually realised that in the painter, who had died so young, they had had an outstanding artist in their midst. Modersohn-Becker was largely unrecognised during her lifetime but is regarded today as one of the pioneers of Expressionism.The sculptor Bernhard Hoetger was one of the few who recognised her talent from an early stage. Hoetger's memories of Paula Modersohn were published in 1920 as an authentic contemporary document in the series Junge Kunst. They are reprinted as a facsimile in this revised and extended edition. The volume is a bibliophilic highlight with an essay explaining the artist's life and work from a present-day perspective, together with her biography and some 40 illustrations of her most important works.
