Memorial Day Photos, Day #1: Paula Modersohn-Becker

Memorial Day got me thinking along these lines.

Day #1 goes to the memory (and great art) of Paula Modersohn-Becker. I suppose I first learned of her through Rilke (in his "Requiem for a Friend"). I kept "chipping away" at knowledge of her and her art. I've been to her museum in Bremen and her gravesite in Worpswede (see below); have also visited her husband Otto Modersohn's museum in Fischerhude.
