Emil Nolde

1867, Nolde1956, Seebüll

Emil Nolde is a master of colour. Following the ideal of Expressionism, he succeeds in living in unity with art in his residential and studio house built in Seebüll on the Baltic coast. Many of his famous watercolours were created here, which had the same - if not even a higher - significance in his oeuvre as his paintings. Nolde's painterly abilities are outstanding, he mastered the watercolour technique with virtuosity, and his coloured paper works are exceptional in their luminosity. Either spectacular evening moods piling up in splendid colors over a low horizon or a daring, colorful seascape with sailors drifting in a red sea: In his landscapes, as in his flower paintings, he combines color more radically than almost anyone else.
