Emil Nolde was one of the most important exponents of Expressionism, and is consid ered one of the main precursors of modernism. His virtuoso handling of colour and the incomparable expressiveness of his paintings, watercolours, and Unpainted Pictures astound viewers again and again, and ensure that every exhibition of his work is a great success.
This volume was produced in close collaboration with the Nolde Stiftung Seebüll. The authors – both noted Nolde experts – illuminate Nolde’s life and work and provide extended discussions of key compositions. The richly illustrated essay section and biography are supplemented by rarely seen documents from the artist’s archive, making the book especially attractive to bibliophiles.
