Emil Nolde was one of the most important exponents of Expressionism, and is considered one of the main precursors of modernism. His virtuosic handling of color and the incomparable expressiveness of his paintings, water colors, and Unpainted Pictures astound viewers again and again, and ensure that every exhibition of his work is a sellout. This volume was produced in close collaboration with the Nolde Stiftung Seebull. The authors both noted Nolde experts illuminate Noldes 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 artists archive, making the book especially attractive to bibliophiles.
