He is best known for his watercolors and expressive color range. After his training in wood carving and drawing at the art school of Flensburg, he worked for various furniture factories in Germany. From 1892 to 1898, he taught design at the Gewerbemuseum in St. Gallen. Nolde became known with small color drawings of Swiss mountains, of which he also produced postcards. He later studied painting in Dachau and at the Académie Julian in Paris in 1899. From 1900 and 1905, he lived alternately in Denmark and Berlin. In the years 1906 to 1907, Nolde was a member of the artist group ‘Die Brücke’, and he met Edvard Munch in Berlin during that time. In 1909, he became a member of the ‘Berliner Secession’. From 1910, he exhibited at the ‘New Secession’ in the circle of Max Pechstein. Between 1913 and 1914, he travelled to the South Seas, like Paul Gauguin and Max Pechstein. In 1930, Nolde moved to Seebüll. During the Third Reich, some of Nolde’s works were classified as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazi regime and confiscated or even destroyed. Today, his works are presented in numerous world-class museums, including the Art Institute in Chicago, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, Berlin’s Brücke Museum, the Albertina Vienna and the Kunstmuseum Basel. In Seebüll and Berlin, foundations have been set up in his honor. (cko) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
