EMIL NOLDE
4 Oct 2019  –5 Jan 2020

German artist Emil Nolde (1867–1956) was a leading modernist of his day. He began his career in art in the 1890s as a neo-romantic, but soon assimilated influences from French impressionism and neo-impressionism. Around 1909, Nolde began painting in a new, expressive style that became his trademark, intense colours combining with a simplified, at times almost caricature-like idiom. The intensely emotional and morbidly beautiful style awakened heated discussion at the time. When the National Socialists came to power, Nolde’s art was condemned as un-German, and in 1941 he was forbidden to paint. He did not heed the injunction, however, and continued to work in secret. Nolde was a keen observer and painter of people and nature, particularly of the sea, and he also loved flowers. All his favourite subjects are presented in the exhibition. The exhibition was produced in collaboration with the Nolde Stiftung in Seebüll.
