Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum
The first museum in the world dedicated to a female painter. It contains numerous examples of her work as well as a Bernhard Hoetger collection.
The Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum was the first museum in the world dedicated to the work of a female artist. The merchant Ludwig Roselius, a patron of the arts, brought together a selection of her major works and these are supplemented by the extensive collection of the Paula Modersohn-Becker Foundation. On show are paintings from all of the creative phases in Modersohn-Becker's life, documenting her outstanding role as a pioneer of modern painting around 1900 and impressively illustrating her search for a new formal language. Jenny Holzer's homage 'For Paula Modersohn-Becker' has been on display in the museum staircase since May 2005.
