A great Expressionist: the exaltation of color and the grotesque.
Emil Nolde, an artist persecuted by the Nazis, rediscovered and reassessed after the war, is now considered one of the greatest exponents of Expressionism.
From the outset his human figures and forms of nature were of grand simplicity, then moving toward a violent, almost caricature-like deformation using large brushstrokes and an absolutely free compositional method.
The volume offers a catalogue raisonné of the oil paintings from the period 1895-1914, providing a precious reference for scholars and art lovers, through analysis of the historical context, the exhibitions, the relationships with other techniques. English edition.
