‘A luminous tale about the courage of the lone female artist.’ Joan London Born in Germany in 1876, Paula Modersohn-Becker was the first female artist to paint herself not only naked but pregnant. Being Here is a moving account of the life of this ground-breaking Expressionist painter, by the acclaimed French writer Marie Darrieussecq. As her art evolves, Paula is torn between Paris and her home in northern Germany. In Paris she can focus on her work, and mix with artists like Rodin and Monet, or her close friend the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. But Germany is home, and that’s where her painter husband Otto lives. Darrieussecq thrillingly describes Paula’s discovery of her style and choice of subjects—women, babies, domestic life. She tells the story of her fraught marriage, her ambivalence about combining her passion for her career as an artist with motherhood. And she recounts her tragic death at thirty-one, days after giving birth. Marie Darrieussecq is a French writer born in Bayonne in 1969. Her first novel, Pig Tales, was published in 1996 and subsequently translated into thirty-five languages. She has written some fifteen books for adults, including novels, short fiction, a play, and nonfiction works. In 2013 she was awarded both the Prix Médicis and the Prix des Prix for her novel Men. Being Here, her biography of Paula Modersohn-Becker, was released in 2017. She is a regular contributor to contemporary art magazines in France and Britain and also writes for Libération and Charlie Hebdo. She lives in Paris. ‘Marie Darrieussecq reads the testament of Modersohn-Becker—the letters, the diaries, and above all the paintings—with a burning intelligence and a fierce hold on what it meant and means to be a woman and an artist.’ J.M. Coetzee ‘There are few writers who may have changed my perception of the world, but Darrieussecq is one of them.’ The Times ‘The internationally celebrated author who illuminates those parts of life other writers cannot or do not want to reach.’ Independent ‘An allusive short memoir that reads like a novel.’ Australian ‘Penny Hueston’s translation from the original French, reads strangely—and in a good way—like true crime...Heartbreaking.’ West Australian ‘A brief, powerful artistic life that went painfully unrewarded—until after the painter’s death.’ Julian Barnes, Best Summer Holiday Reads, Guardian UK ‘A vividly empathetic impressionist collage...This lively, attractive book is an excellent introduction to [Modersohn-Becker’s] world and her astonishing achievement.’ New Zealand Listener

"In 1908, Rainer Maria Rilke wrote his "Requiem for a Friend" in memory of Paula Modersohn-Becker, the German painter who had had a profound effect on him, both personally and artistically, and who had died a year earlier. Modersohn-Becker, despite being one of the great modern painters, is today remembered primarily as she is portrayed in that poem. In Dear Friend, Eric Torgersen looks at the relationship of these two great artists whose vexed seven-year friendship was extraordinarily productive for both, and offers an introduction to the life and work of Modersohn-Becker, a gifted and determined woman whose work stands comparison with that of any painter of her day." "Included in the book are sixteen illustrations as well as new translations by Torgersen of Rilke's "Requiem for a Friend" and of the love poems Rilke wrote for Becker shortly after they met. Torgersen discusses Modersohn-Becker's vital paintings, including her unfinished portrait of Rilke. He quotes extensively from the letters and journals of both figures, translating many of Rilke's into English for the first time. Finally, Torgersen addresses the unanswered question of whether the two were ever lovers, and offers new insights into Rilke's writing of "Requiem for a Friend.""--Jacket.

Considered one of the most important representatives of early German Expressionism, painter Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) left behind an oeuvre of still-life paintings, landscape paintings, portraits and self-portraits in a characteristic expressionist style upon her premature death at the age of 41. Famous for her friendship with poet Rainer Maria Rilke and for having influenced Picasso, Modersohn-Becker is also recognized as a pioneer for female artistic representation of the female body, and is often cited as the first woman to paint full-length nude self-portraits. This volume, published on the occasion of Louisiana's retrospective exhibition, includes essays by experts focusing on different aspects of the artist and her oeuvre, as well as contributions from contemporary artists Rineke Dijkstra, Chantal Joffe and Daniel Richter. With more than 100 images, the book is an accessible introduction to this inaugural Expressionist about whom little has been published outside of Germany.

Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) ist eine der bedeutendsten Malerinnen zu Beginn der Moderne. Und doch: Bis heute wurde vor allem der Aufbruch der Männer-Moderne wahrgenommen: Cezanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, Munch, Picasso, Rodin und andere.Doch ohne Paula Modersohn-Becker und einige andere Künstlerinnen sähe die Kunst des frühen zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts anders aus.Zum 100. Todestag der Künstlerin, am 20. November 2006, erscheint von der Kunsthistorikerin Renate Berger dieSchilderung der prägendsten und aufregendsten Zeit der Künstlerin: die "Pariser Jahre"zwischen 1900 und 1907. Begleitet wird sie bei ihren zahlreichen Aufenthalten in der französischen Metropole von der Freundin und Malerin Clara Westhoff,der Ehefrau Rainer Maria Rilkes. Die Stadt an der Seine ist ein Abenteuer, eine Flucht aus der Enge der deutschen Provinz in eine Welt, in der die Sprache der Kunst neu erfunden wurde, und die Modersohn-Becker schließlich in Worpswede aufdie ihr eigene Weise weiterentwickeln wird. Paris ist aber auch der Ort, an dem Paula Modersohn-Becker ganz zu sich findet und ihr Leben endgültig selbst in die Hand nimmt. So steht sie auch am Anfang einer sehr aktuellen, unaufgeregten undzugleich entschiedenen Selbstbefreiung der moderner Frauen.
