"Wie am Rande des Paradieses"--So beschreibt die Worpsweder Malerin Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) ihren Eindruck von der nordfriesischen Insel Amrum. Noch Anfang desselben Jahres hatte sie sich in Paris intensiv mit der französischen Kunst beschäftigt. Nun im Sommer 1903 reiste sie mit ihrem Ehemann Otto Modersohn (1865-1943), einem der Mitbegründer der Worpsweder Künstlerkolonie, und dessen Tochter Elsbeth in die Ferien an der Nordsee. Zum Reisegepäck gehörten natürlich auch Pinsel, Palette und Zeichenstift: Das Künstlerpaar schuf zahlreiche Ölstudien, Zeichnungen und Gemälde - Werke, die die Intensität des gemeinsamen Schaffens und des gegenseitigen Lernens, aber auch die zunehmende Verschiedenheit ihrer künstlerischen Auffassungen offenbaren. Die Ausstellung versammelt Leihgaben aus öffentlicher und privater Hand, insbesondere aus dem Otto-Modersohn-Museum, Fischerhude.

His landscapes "express deep, deep emotions" (Paula Becker, 1898). For painter Otto Modersohn, 'simplicity' and 'integrity' were key, as was the portrayal of nature, which formed the focus of his work. The various twists and turns of life are reflected in his artistic signature, which ranges from expressive intensity and a build-up of colour, through rugged motifs with a dark palette to a dematerialised transparency in well-balanced compositions. Modersohn's silent landscapes provide striking insights through the artist's eyes into a reality that is seen but is primarily sensed
