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.
