Emil Nolde was a German painter and printmaker. He was one of the first Expressionists, a member of Die Brücke, and is considered to be one of the great oil painting and watercolour painters of the 20th century.
Emil Nolde -Expresionismo - El artista expresionista trató de representar la experiencia emocional en su forma más completa, sin preocuparse de la realidad externa sino de su naturaleza interna y de las emociones que despierta en el observador. Para lograrlo, los temas se exageran y se distorsionan con el fin de intensificar la comunicación artística
I became hooked on German Expressionism during my time in Art School. I ended up doing Honors work in Art History and focused upon German Expressionist paintings and prints. This is one of the marvelous "unpainted paintings" by Emil Nolde... part of the body of watercolors he painted because they didn't have the tell-tale smell of oils, while banned under penalty of death by the Nazis from making any art at all. He hid these works in a secret floor panel beneath the dining room table.
