Paula Modersohn-Becker, 1906.

German expressionist painter, Paula Modersohn-Becker, painted this portrait of her close friend and poet, Rainer Maria Rilke, in 1906.  Nearly one year later, Paula would pass away suddenly at age 31. The art of both Modersohn-Becker and Rilke lives indefinitely. Photo courtesy of Wikipedia Commons.
