Paula Modersohn-Becker

Sitting at my desk the other day I found myself staring at this postcard I'd blue-tacked up on my studio wall.  I'd found it in mum's papers after she died. I wasn't surprised to find it there...she loved children..I couldn't help wondering why the hands were so red and a little bit swollen looking...I didn't know the artist and so I took it down and had a look.  This sad little image was painted by German artist Paula Modersohn-Becker.

She only had a very short life dying after child-birth at the age of 31 but during that time produced what are considered to be the "most important representatives of early Expressionism."
