Paula Becker was born in Dresden in 1876 under the name "Minna Hermine Paula Becker". At her parents' request, Becker travels to England in 1892 to stay with her aunt. There she receives her first drawing lessons. In 1896 she took part in a course at the drawing and painting school of the Verein der Künstlerinnen und Kunstfreundinnen in Berlin. At that time, women were still not allowed to study at the art academy. This course was followed by one and a half years of training in painting in Berlin. During this time, drawing classes dominated, and it was not until 1897 that Becker switched to the painting class of the artist Jeanna Bauck.
