Modern Art

I’m not a huge fan of modern art but because the Modern Art Museum is interesting architecture and near the Eiffel Tower, I went to have a look.

I saw the work of a German artist, Paula Modersohn Becker, who was in at the very beginning of Impressionism in Germany. She did many paintings of children, and mothers with their children but I was most taken with her still life. She always wanted children and when she finally had one at the age of 31, she died of an embolism because they kept women in bed so long after giving birth. That’s why nurses are always getting people up and making them walk. Times have changed.

A huge room showing the effect of electricity on Paris by Dufy. Very colorful and impressive.
