Paula Modersohn-Becker & others
12 November 2021 - 12 February 2022
Making Modernism is the first major UK exhibition devoted to pioneering women working in Germany in the early 1900s: Paula Modersohn-Becker, Kӓthe Kollwitz, Gabriele Münter and Marianne Werefkin.
It reframes the movement through the experiences and perspectives of these ground-breaking artists who were central to the development of radical new approaches to art in Europe.
Celebrated in their native homelands, this exhibition will introduce their innovative paintings and works on paper, alongside key pictures by Erma Bossi, Ottilie Reylaender and Jacoba van Heemskerk.
The exhibition explores subjects such as self-portraiture, still-life, the female body, depictions of childhood, landscapes and urban scenes.
