Sculptor Bernhard Hoetger was one of the few people who recognized Modersohn-Becker’s talent from an early stage. In 1920, he published a book collecting his memories of her, and they are reproduced as facsimile here. In addition to Hoetger’s writings, the book offers an essay tracing Modersohn-Becker’s life and work from a present-day perspective, together with a traditional biographical sketch and reproductions of forty of her most important works.
