Girl in White
www.suehubbard.com, 27 Feb 2013 [cached]
Paula Becker married the artist Otto Modersohn, 10 years her senior, but also had an intense relationship with the poet Raina Maria Rilke, husband of Paula's friend Clara Westhoff, a sculptor.
...
Paula Becker is not a well-known artist, nor was she much admired by many of her contemporaries. Reading this novel I have no doubt you will wish she was.
...
The depth of the narrative reveals the tortured and lonely soul of Paula as she struggled to gain the revered status she desired. The reader feels her pain and sacrifice as she fails time and time again to reach her own ridiculously high standards, yet her unwavering belief in her potential to get there shows an admiral level of self-courage and belief. Often lonely, often brave and often selfish the reader gains real insight into Becker's ambitious and obstinate mind, desiring her success as much as she does.
How long did the book take from that initial idea to a finished manuscript? On reading the Girl in White it felt at times as if I was walking around Paris and Worpswede with Paula, how much research did you do for the book and did it involve going to France and Germany?
...
Paula was denounced as a degenerate artist by the Nazis.
...
Paula becomes my fictional Paula - though I do believe she is pretty similar to the actual person. But even so what I have written is an act of fiction and Mathilde had a formal literary role. She is there to frame the story, to stop it being merely biography, to allow me to imagine and also to explore the relationship between the Utopianism of the Worpswede painters and the slippage into the attitudes of the Third Reich. It also opens up the whole debate as to what is the best way to reveal a life. It is quite possible that fiction is more emotionally accurate than bald fact. Even a biographer is, to some extent, writing fiction.
And if your novel has inspired the reader to want to find out more about Paula what would you suggest? I'm assuming from your comment about the quality of the translation that you wouldn't want recommend her diaries?

This novel is an incredible testimony to the tortures and struggles many artists see necessary to put themselves through.
Any artist reading this book will feel a great amount of empathy with Paula.
...
Paula's unsettled mind and the conflicting society of Worpswede become reflected in the unsettling Germany that now exists and the uncertain future that awaits Mathilde.
...
Leaving her bourgois family, Paula went to live in a community of artists in Worpswede on the wild north German moors.
...
No one remembers Paula Modersohn Becker. My parents married in May. It was a simple enough wedding. Paula in a white muslin dress, my father, Otto, ten years older and a widower looking, from the photograph I still have, stern and professorial in his dark suit, with his wire glasses and newly trimmed beard.
...
Paula is much shorter; her hair looped simply at the nape of her neck. I'm told by those who knew her, by my aunt Milly and my grandmother, that I look a little like her.
...
And I'll never know for sure how much Paula really wanted me; really wanted a child or if, given the choice, she would have stayed on in Paris working in the thick of things and not have come back to Worpswede.
...
Well, tomorrow, I shall begin my search for Paula.
