Paula Modersohn-Becker (February 8, 1876 ¿ November 21, 1907) was a German painter and one of the most important representatives of early expressionism. In a brief career, cut short by her death from an embolism at the age of 31, she executed groundbreaking images of great intensity. In her last trip to Paris in 1906, she produced a body of paintings from which she felt very great excitement and satisfaction. During this period of painting, she produced her initial nude self-portraits (something surely unprecedented by a female painter) and portraits of friends such as Rainer Maria Rilke and Werner Sombart. Some critics consider this period of her art production to be the strongest and most compelling.
