Emil Nolde : artist of the elements by Averil King( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The celebrated German Expressionist, Emil Nolde (1867-1956), created vivid and passionate oils and watercolours. Often incorporating vibrant colours and elements of fantasy, these paintings quickly imprint themselves on the viewer's mind. His graphic works, especially his etchings, have a delicacy and originality distinguishing them from those of his contemporaries. This introduction to his work, the first in English, sets him in his time and place for readers unfamiliar with his oeuvre. Averil King's perceptive and wide-ranging text investigates the themes that preoccupied the man and the influences that shaped his art."

German-Danish painter and printmaker Emil Nolde (1865 1956) was one of the first and most important representatives of expressionism, as well as an essential precursor of modernism. First trained as a woodcarver, he later studied painting and developed the vigorous brushwork and vivid choice of colors for which he is best known and which would make him one of the great oil and watercolor painters of the twentieth century. His works, including "The Prophet" and "Portrait of a Young Woman and a Child," are exhibited in major museums around the world. Produced in close collaboration with the Nolde Foundation in Germany, "Emil Nolde" illuminates the artist's life and provides extended discussions of his key works. As they trace Nolde's path from a small village in Denmark to his evolution into a prestigious artist, noted Nolde experts Christian Ring and Hans-Joachim Throl explore Nolde's world of color as seen in his paintings of gardens, landscapes, and seas and consider his use of the fantastic and grotesque in his work. They also examine his life during the Nazi regime, when his work was condemned and removed from museums and he was forbidden to paint, and his subsequent creation of the "Unpainted Pictures," a gorgeous and diverse series of watercolors he created in seclusion between 1938 and 1945. Supplemented by rarely seen documents from Nolde's archive and complemented by fifty-five color images, "Emil Nolde "sheds new light on the artist, his life in the German-Danish borderlands, and his prolific production of outstanding works
Emil Nolde : the artist during the Third Reich by Emil Nolde( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the Second World War ended in 1945 the Expressionist Emil Nolde (1867-1956) came to symbolise the epitome of the modern German artist persecuted by the National Socialist regime. More works were confiscated from Nolde during the 'Degenerate Art' campaign than from any other artist, and no other artist's works were as prominently pilloried as Nolde's in the initial Entartete Kunst (Degenerate Art) shows that began travelling the country in 1937. In 1941 he was forbidden to practise as an artist. How do Nolde's ostracism and the professional ban fit together with our knowledge that he had been a Party member since 1934 and that he remained loyal to the National Socialist regime until the end of the war? This publication explains Nolde's lasting commitment to National Socialism. It underscores the importance of his work to his autobiography, exposes the consequences of his increasingly radical anti-Semitism, and presents a new perception of the professional ban and the creation of the 'Unpainted Pictures'. Previously unpublished letters and documents, as well as many lesser-known works from the artist's estate at the Stiftung Seebüll Ada and Emil Nolde, provide insight into Nolde's behaviour and artistic practice during the National Socialist era."

Known as a master of colour, Emil Nolde used many different types of media besides painting, including watercolor, drawing, and prints, to create works such as his numerous flower paintings and coastal landscapes. The book explores Nolde's expressionist painting technique and reexamines Nolde's motives as an artist, by looking at how his works were received and how this was shaped by the artist's image of himself. As well as featuring Nolde's lesser studied early and late paintings and previously unpublished works this volume also presents the latest research on Nolde's work and his relationship to National Socialism. The book accompanies an extensive retrospective exhibition on Nolde's work
