    • Paula Modersohn-Becker, Sitzender Junge mit Strohhut unter Birken, 1904
      Dec. 01, 2023

      Paula Modersohn-Becker, Sitzender Junge mit Strohhut unter Birken, 1904

      Est: €250,000 - €300,000

      Dated '04.' in red lower left. Already shown in 1917 at the major Paula Modersohn-Becker exhibition at Hannover’s Kestner Gesellschaft, the provenance of the painting “Sitzender Junge mit Strohhut unter Birken” prominently features Bernhard Hoetger two years later. His purchase of the work in 1919 and its publication in his essay additionally indicate the significance of this captivating picture of a child (see Hoetger, 1919, op. cit.). The two artists had met in 1906 while both were in the midst of extended stays in Paris, and this meeting developed into an intense collaboration. When World War I began – Paula Modersohn-Becker had already died after giving birth to her child in 1907 – Hoetger and his wife moved to Worpswede, and he explained his choice to live there like this: “In those years, it became more and more clear to me that a landscape in whose air an art like that of Paula Modersohn could grow would also have to be the right atmosphere for my work” (cited in exh. cat. Bernhard Hoetger, Bildhauer – Maler – Baukünstler – Designer, Dortmund, 1984, p. 14). The people in Worpswede, often placed between the birch trees typical of the north German landscape, became one of the main motifs in the work of Paula Modersohn-Becker. As if searching for a pristine primitivity, she recorded – much like contemporary colleagues who found their motifs in the South Pacific or along the German shores of the Baltic – the rural populace of Worpswede. This led to images of children that are extraordinarily convincing in their concentrated simplicity: among these, the present example is remarkable for the monumentality of the natural element and the powerful presence of the boy. It is no coincidence that the figure depicted in bold red in the middle ground is reminiscent of a fly agaric mushroom, and she establishes a counterpoint to the earthy colours of the forest while gauging the depth of the depicted space. In terms of colour, the boy’s clothes correspond to the white of the stout birch trunks and his shoes to the earth tone of the forest floor, integrating the figure of the child into the landscape, while the blue of the sky is repeated in the blue of his stockings. The work depicts a sort of allegorical image of the common roots of humankind and nature.

      PAULA MODERSOHN-BECKER CIRCLE

      Est: €800 - €1,600

      PAULA MODERSOHN-BECKER CIRCLE Circle of Paula Modersohn-Becker Children with Lanterns oil/cardboard, 62,5 x 53 cm ESTIMATE °€ 800 - 1600 STARTING PRICE °€ 800 The German painter Paula Modersohn-Becker, née Minna Hermine Paula Becker, was an important representative of early Expressionism. She received her first art lessons at the St. John's Wood Art School in London, founded by Elíseo Abelardo Calderón and Bernard E. Ward. In Bremen she received private painting lessons from Bernhard Wiegandt. In 1898, her uncle Wulf von Bültzingslöwen gave her a trip to Norway as a reward for her successful completion of her studies at the teachers' college; Both of them got to know the paintings of Edvard Munch there. In 1893 she saw pictures of the Worpswede artist circle for the first time in the Kunsthalle Bremen, by Otto Modersohn, Fritz Mackensen, Fritz Overbeck, Hand am Ende and Heinrich Vogler. Modersohn later became Becker's husband. In Berlin she took a course at the drawing and painting school of the Association of Berlin Artists, with Jacob Alberts and Curt Stoeving. In 1896 she began a year and a half of training: portrait painting with Jacob Alberts and Martin Körte, nude painting with Ernst Friedrich Hausmann, and landscape painting with Ludwig Dettmann. During this time she often met Rainer Maria Rilke, whom she later portrayed and who admired her art. A decade earlier, Kätze Kollwitz had studied at the so-called “Women's Academy” of the Association of Berlin Artists. In 1897 Becker was accepted into Jeanna Bauck's painting class at the Ladies Academy. Bauck made her want to go to Paris. In 1899 she met Carl Vinnen and Carl Hauptmann in Berlin. During her years in Berlin, Becker spent a lot of time drawing in museums. Similar to the Nazarenes before them, she particularly valued the artists of the German and Italian Renaissance such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Hans Holbein the Elder. Ä., Titian, Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci. Becker repeatedly spent a lot of time in the Worpswede artists' colony and in Paris. The artists of Worpswede, like the Barbizon school founded by Théodore Rousseau, sought a new understanding of nature. From around 1898 she designed Stollwerck pictures on behalf of the Cologne chocolate producer Ludwig Stollwerck together with Otto Modersohn, Fritz Overbeck and Heinrich Vogeler. In Paris she was, among other things, Paula Becker met Auguste Rodin and studied at the Académie Colarossi with Courtois, Collin and Louis-Auguste Girardot. In Paris, Becker visited Ottilie Reylaender, a student of Johann Hinrich Fehr and Fritz Mackensen. Another friend was Clara Westhoff. The Modersohn-Becker couple visited Carl's captain and met the sociologist Werner Sombart there. In Dresden they met Otto Mueller. Inspired by a sculpture shown at the Salon des Indépendants, Becker visited the sculptor Bernhard Hoetger in his Paris studio, which left a lasting impression on her and in her painting. As a result of her second stay in Paris around 1900, monumentality and severity in composition and form became increasingly important in Becker's work, which points to an intensive engagement with Paul Gaugin, Henri Matisse and Paul Cézanne. Furthermore, the stylistic proximity of her children's portraits to the paintings of the young Picasso from the Blue and Pink Periods is striking. Elements of Cubism can be seen in the portraits from 1906 and 1907.

      Paula Modersohn-Becker, Landschaft mit Birkenweg im Herbst, Circa 1900

      Est: €80,000 - €100,000

      Verso with faded illegible confirmation by Otto Modersohn and inscribed "Worpswede Sept. 1923" and "L H HB"[?]. The landscape of Worpswede is defined by the brown of the moor, the greenish brown of the heather, the windswept trees and a lofty sky. It was in these inhospitable surroundings - which offered their inhabitants only a modest living defined by difficult labour - where Paula Modersohn-Becker lived from 1898, when she joined the artist's colony which had gathered there around her teacher Fritz Mackensen, Hans am Ende, Heinrich Vogeler and her future husband Otto Modersohn. Like her male colleagues, she found an inexhaustible source of inspiration in the austere beauty of the landscape and the simple existence of its inhabitants. From the beginning the artist was searching for her own independent way of expressing herself artistically - earnestly and unsentimentally seeking the greatest possible authenticity. She developed a reductive, two-dimensional manner of painting that concentrated on the image's essential messages. This was entirely in harmony with nature's unwelcoming character at Worpswede and additionally pointed to the new ideas among avant-garde artists. Here, between the clouds torn apart by the wind, a gently blue sky rises above a landscape dominated by tones of brown. A farm track describes a gentle curve in the middle of the heather-covered fields; it is lined with young birch trees whose leaves have already turned to autumn colours. Their delicately rising little trunks form the focus of the painter's interest while the plain stretching all the way to the horizon is summarily depicted. There is a balance between the earthy gravity and the optimism in this work from around 1900, and they can be seen as a metaphor for the course that Paula Modersohn-Becker's artistic development would take in the years that followed.

      Paula Modersohn-Becker, Kinder zwischen Birkenstämmen, 1904

      Est: €180,000 - €220,000

      Dated '04' in red lower right. It was Paula Modersohn-Becker's mother in Bremen who owned the present painting, which Gustav Pauli still listed under the title “Kinder unter Birken”. In the layout of the composition, in the selected colours and in the simplifications of its visual indications, it provides an exemplary summation of the elements of her developing personal style. Far removed from any sort of sentimentality and detached observation, Paula Modersohn-Becker succeeds in radiating human intimacy and depth of feeling in this likeness. The motif of children, which was to become so fundamental, still incorporates situational as well as naturalistic, landscape elements. This would become almost entirely lost in the portraits after 1906, which brought further stylistic and formal developments favouring, among other things, full-face depictions with flowers and blooms as attributes. From the very beginning, the artist fought to achieve an independent, distinctive mode of expression in her painting, which was to be the new and authentic result of her work. In Worpswede, Paula Modersohn-Becker was met by a rustic type of people shaped by the landscape and their living conditions, and they literally became her “model”: a catalyst and touchstone for her extremely individual experiments in form and colour. It was certainly not what her mother had still, somewhat helplessly, admonished her to do in the beginning: “Now nail yourself down, too, compel yourself to pedantic precision in hands, eyes, noses. Mackensen recently spoke about an 'unloved ear' while looking at one of your studies. He did not say it humorously, but seriously as a judge of the dead” (cited in: Cornelia Saxe, in: Britta Jürgs (Ed.), Wie eine Nilbraut, die man in die Wellen wirft, Berlin 1998, p. 17). According to her daughter, however, the “genre” (of someone like Fritz Mackensen) should be countered through something like an artistic “runic alphabet” (see S. D. Gallwitz (Ed.), Briefe und Tagebücher von Paula Modersohn-Becker, Munich 1927, p. XI). It is well known that Paula Modersohn-Becker found complementary and many-faceted artistic inspiration in Paris purely through looking at works. On 25 February 1903 she noted: “I see a great deal and I believe I am inwardly moving closer to beauty. In the last few days I have found and thought a lot of form. [...] The grand simplicity of form - that is something marvellous. As far back as I can remember, I have always tried to invest the heads I painted or drew with the simplicity of nature. Now I feel deeply how I can learn from the heads of antiquity. How grandly and simply they are seen! Brow, eyes, mouth, nose, cheeks, chin, that is everything. It sounds so simple and is nonetheless so very, very much. How simply such an antique mouth is grasped in its planes. Then I feel how, when drawing, I must seek out many peculiar forms and overlappings in nature. This feeling of the merging and superimposing of things suits me. I only have to attentively cultivate and refine it. I want to draw much more in Worpswede. I want to pose groups for myself of the children from the almshouse or the A. family or N. family. I am very much looking forward to the work; I believe my stay here will have done me a great deal of good.” (cited in: Gallwitz, op. cit., Munich 1927, pp. 198/199).

      Paula Modersohn-Becker, Brustbild zweier Jungen vor Landschaft, Circa 1901

      Est: €80,000 - €120,000

      Unsigned. - On the verso, inscribed "19" by Otto Modersohn in blue and red pen verso and inscribed "45" in pencil (former purchase price). With a confirmation from Wolfgang Werner, Bremen/Berlin, dated 10 Oct. 2018. This work will be included in the supplement of the catalogue raisonné. Likenesses of this kind are not uncommon in Paula Modersohn-Becker's oeuvre. However, the suddenness in the artist's presentation of the two boys' heads is nonetheless initially astounding, and it completely captures viewers' attention as they study the faces. Set in front of a distant landscape, Modersohn-Becker places the two boys within the picture like two busts. The one on the left is seen almost in full face, with his right shoulder raised somewhat; he nearly conceals the second boy, who is looking to the right. With his blue eyes, the boy on the left scrutinises us in an undefined manner. The one standing behind him behaves similarly: his almost emotionless gaze - serious, expressionless, with no hint of a smile in his eyes - is turned in a different direction, away from us. The leaves extending into the image above the two boys suggest protective crowns. According to Wolfgang Werner, the boy shown on the left is probably the same model depicted in “Brustbild eines Jungen vor Apfelbäumen” (see Günter Busch/Wolfgang Werner, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Werkverzeichnis der Gemälde, Munich 1998, vol. II, p. 131, cat. no. 170). In 1898, when Paula Becker settled in Worpswede as an aspiring artist, the new landscape not far from Bremen exercised a direct influence on her pictorial world and her painting. She painted, or rather, she created a portrait of the landscape with its slender birch trees, meadows framed by the dark canals of the fen and the people who lived there. “Painting uncompromisingly and straightforwardly, things that are very typical of Worpswede and which no one else had ever been able to see and paint”, is how Rilke describes the young painter in a letter to the Wuppertal collector Karl von der Heydt (cited in Heinrich Wiegand Petzet, Das Bildnis des Dichters, Frankfurt a. M., 1957, p. 68). Modersohn-Becker often drew situations featuring children in extreme close-up, thus concentrating more strongly on what was essential: the view of a deeply human statement. In this context her passionate emotionality is far from social agitation and equally far from a romanticisation of farmers' poverty. Pictures like these reveal her profound bond with the children; she understands how to present this not just thematically, but also formally. RefMod191119

      Worpsweder Bauernkind, auf einem Stuhl sitzend. Pastell auf Papier (auf 2 mont. Blättern). Nicht sign., bezeichnet und dat. (um 1946). Ca. 98 x 62 cm. - Unter Glas (ungeöffnet, kleine Läsur). (60) - Nach dem gleichnamigen, um 1905 entstandenen Gemälde von Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907), heute in der Kunsthalle Bremen. - Das Bild der Bremer Kunsthalle hat eine bewegte Vergangenheit hinter sich. Von der Kunsthalle 1913 erworben, war es als "entartet" beschlagnahmt worden und wurde schließlich nach Kriegsende aus dem Nachlaß von Rolf Hetsch (1903-1946) an die Kunsthalle zurückgegeben. Als Kunsthistoriker hatte Hetsch Arbeiten über Paula Modersohn-Becker veröffentlicht, später war er an der "Aktion Entartete Kunst" beteiligt und im Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda tätig. - Unsere Kopie, die in der Größe und in allen Einzelheiten dem Gemälde der Kunsthalle entspricht, entstand wohl in der Zeit, als er es in seinem Haus lagerte. Dafür sprechen auch die Zeitungsausschnitte aus dem Jahr 1946, die auf der Rückseite zur Befestigung der umlaufend angesetzten Papierstreifen dienen. Es ist daher recht wahrscheinlich, daß das Pastell von der Ehefrau des Kunsthistorikers geschaffen wurde, Mariam Hetsch-Rudeloff, die als Kinderbuchillustratorin tätig war. - Kinderbildnisse nehmen im Werk der früh verstorbenen, bedeutenden Künstlerin eine besondere Stellung ein und sind ein immer wiederkehrendes Motiv. Wie Murken schreibt, finden wir "in den frühen Studienjahren, schließlich später wieder seit dem Jahre 1905 ... vereinzelt auch Gemälde, auf denen die persönlichen Feinheiten des kindlichen Gesichtes wie auch der Hände mit einer ganz besonderen Sorgfalt und Einfühlsamkeit herausgearbeitet sind. ... Reglos, zwischen Schüchternheit und Zutraulichkeit, sitzen oder stehen die Kinder meist frontal vor einem neutralen, monochromen Hintergrund oder vor einem angedeuteten Rauminterieur" (Ch. Murken, Paula Modersohn-Becker - Kinderbildnisse, Ostfildern-Ruit 2004, S. 76).
