EMIL NOLDE, (GERMAN 1867-1956),

Estimate: $50,000 - $80,000

Description: EMIL NOLDE (german 1867-1956) "EVENING LANDSCAPE IN NORTH FRIESLAND" Signed ''Nolde'' bottom right, watercolor on paper Sheet size: 8 3/16 x 9 1/8 in. (20.8 x 23.2cm) provenance: Private Collection, New York, New York. M. Knoedler & Co., New York, New York. Serge Sabarsky Gallery, New York, New York. Private Collection, Ohio (acquired from the above in 1969). By descent in the family. Private Collection, Maryland. exhibited: "Friends Collect," Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1966. note: Born Emil Hansen in the village of Nolde - an area in Northern Germany by the Southern Danish border, in the Prussian Duchy of Schleswig - Emil Nolde was one of the most important German Expressionist painters and printmakers of the 20th century. In 1906, he became a member of the Expressionist group ''Die Brucke,'' a bohemian collective of artists opposed to the established bourgeois social order in Germany and who sought to express authentic emotion by practicing an expressive, avant-garde style of art characterized by a direct approach to form and heightened color. Twelve years later, Nolde exhibited with the Munich based group ''Der Blaue Reiter,'' a stylistically abstract counterpart to Die Brucke''s figurative style. Der Blaue Reiter artists, of which Nolde was not formally a member but rather a kindred spirit, sought to convey spirituality in their art. Nolde was also a member of the ''Berlin Secession,'' a group of over sixty artists who rejected the then prevalent view of academic art in Berlin in the 1890s, and who thus seceded from the very well-established Association of Berlin Artists. It should be noted, however, that Nolde''s association with these art movements was short-lived; throughout his career he remained a very solitary artist, who very much refrained from committing himself to any one organization or movement. In addition to his powerful and primitive woodcuts, Nolde is arguably best known for his watercolors which, like the present work, are rendered in a loose, spontaneous and expressive style. These are often executed without contours and on either non-absorbent or even wet paper, and in rich, vivid colors. Nolde is known to have assigned a symbolic quality to the colors he chose. He said: "Every color holds within it a soul, which makes me happy or repels me, and which acts as a stimulus. To a person who has no art in him, colors are colors, tones tones... and that is all." While Nolde was awarded the prestigious Order of Merit following World War II, during the war he was declared by the Nazis to be a "degenerate" modern artist, and over one thousand of his works were removed from museums at that time. In 1941, the Nazi party banned him from painting. Nonetheless, during this period Nolde executed more than one thousand small watercolors, known as his ''ungemalte bilder'' or "unfinished paintings," small works done in watercolor applied directly on wet paper.

Emil Nolde, Vormittagswolken, Before 1928

Estimate: €90,000 - €100,000

Description: Signed 'Nolde.' in pen and ink lower right.With a photo-certificate by Manfred Reuther, Risum-Lindholm, dated 21 April 2017; the work is registered under the archive number "Nolde A-16/2017".“I, too, lived entirely in painting and - even if it was not much - with the nature going on around us, the animals, the plants, the high, still, white clouds” (Emil Nolde, Jahre der Kämpfe: 1902-1914, Flensburg 1958, p. 23).For Nolde landscape and clouds meant earth and sky, world and cosmos: the outward experience of an overwhelming nature and its inward experience all at once. His landscapes and seascapes affect their viewers with an overwhelming accord of colours, the contrast and harmony of luminous tones. Nolde grasps the “Vormittagswolken” in terms of a clear triad consisting of blue, green and a whitish grey, thus creating a work that simultaneously displays a powerfully evocative expressiveness and a cool freshness. The nearby sea can be intuited directly from the tonality of the massive cloud formation before a blue sky above the lushly green plain. Here it becomes palpable to a degree found in only a few of Nolde's depictions of the broad, wind-shaped landscape of his home. As empty as it may sometimes appear, it nevertheless has nothing monotonous about it; instead, its atmosphere changes constantly in terms of light and colour. Here, where the landscape provides a stage for Nolde, the sky and clouds are the actors: “On the flat land they are the dread of weak natures and, for the strong, an experience of drama and nature's grandeur every time.” (ibid., pp. 110 f.).Nolde's watercolour was created around 1925; in the cloud formation and suggested ditches it exhibits a very precise and almost symmetrical composition. Nolde formulates the cumulus clouds with subtle volumes and generates an astounding sense of depth through their layering. He did not move from Utenwarf to the nearby Seebüll until 1927, where his new house and studio would be built over the course of the following years. The draining of the here depicted Wiedau lowlands near Utenwarf at the lake Ruttebüll was begun in these years - this intrusion into the primeval landscape moved Nolde in many respects.

Condition Report: Probably backed with Japan paper.

Emil Nolde, Weite Marschlandschaft mit Bauernhöfen, Circa 1930/1935

Estimate: €140,000 - €160,000

Description: Signed 'Nolde.' in black pen lower right.With a photo-certificate by Manfred Reuther, Klockries, dated 31 March 2017; the work is registered under the archive number "Nolde A-14/2017".According to Manfred Reuther the motif of this landscape shows the Friesian marsh in Gotteskoog, with the large farmsteads surrounding Seebüll. In 1927 the artist had a new home and studio based on his own designs built on the high ground of the Seebüll terp. In the years that followed - around 1930 and in the early 1930s - he painted a number of large marsh landscapes recording his new surroundings and their topography. In his memoirs Nolde precisely describes the communities around him according to the four directions and lists them by name. He also captures the impression dominating over everything: “We stand on our Seebüll terp, the entire broad dome of the heavens above us, curving round even more than a semicircle, because it is odd how much a little elevation on a flat plain enlarges the arc of the heavens.” (Emil Nolde, Seebüll 1928, in: Mein Leben, Cologne 1976, p. 373). “His homeland is the country along the sea between Tondern and the village of Nolde, with Ruttebüll, Rosenkranz, Utenwarf and Seebüll. A peculiar country that still belonged to the sea for part of the 16th century: it was a tidal flat with a few inhabited Halligen islands, wide tidal creeks and fluid mud, and it was flooded by the North Sea with the changing of the tides. Then came the building of dykes and their destruction through storm surges: an eternal struggle whose terrors remained palpable for people down to the most recent past. Even when the dykes provided protection against the surge of the sea, the danger of flooding had not been banished, because the land lay too low. The many lakes and the rivers flowing into the North Sea could not hold the masses of water coming from the uplands of the geest: from autumn to spring everything was extensively flooded. Then, the lonely farmsteads on the Halligen and terps stood like islands in the sea, and the boat outside the door of their home became the only means of transportation. That is what the landscape was still like thirty or forty years ago: a primordial landscape of strange beauty.” (Martin Urban, Emil Nolde - Landschaften, Aquarelle und Zeichnungen, Cologne 1969, p. 26).The paintings and watercolours created after this “primordial landscape” at that time are now undisputed masterworks within Emil Nolde's oeuvre. They are characterised by the intense and expressive tonalities of entirely different atmospheres and moods. In the present work the red farmhouses, with the long ridges of their roofs, lie on the distant horizon in the midst of green land saturated with moisture. Nolde uses narrow and dark outlines to emphasise the contours, and he suggests the ditches running throughout the landscape. In the play of clouds and light high in the sky - which is brighter here - rich fireworks of complementary colours unfold, with yellow and orange accompanied by blue and violet. The watercolour's overwhelming chromatic effect translates the felt power of nature's infinite theatre, which is constantly changing, constantly renewed.

Condition Report: The sheet very minimally irregularly cut. In fine condition. - The old frame backing with the imprinted label from "Commertschen Kunsthandlung", Hamburg.

EMIL NOLDE - Kerzentänzerinnen

Estimate: €25,000 - €30,000

Description: Holzschnitt auf festem Kupferdruckpapier. (1917). Ca. 30,5 x 24 cm (Blattgröße ca. 36 x 28,5 cm). Eines von 13 Exemplaren. Signiert unten rechts. Das Thema "Tanz" zieht sich wie ein roter Faden durch das Werk Noldes. Von der Jahrhundertwende bis in die 1930er Jahre kam es zu einem Einfluss des expressionistischen Tanzes auf die Bildende Kunst. Nolde selbst gab schon 1910 in dem Gemälde "Tanz um das Goldene Kalb" (Pinakothek der Moderne, München) diesen Einflüssen Gestalt, indem er eine Gruppe von Tanzenden in ekstatischem Zustand in üppiger Farbenpracht zeigt. Auch in seinen graphischen Werken nahm er das Thema des Tanzes auf. In den Werken dieser Zeit verarbeitet er zudem auch seine Eindrücke von den einfachen Naturvölkern seiner Südseereise 1913-1914. Der expressionistische Tanz entwickelte sich als Gegenbewegung zum klassischen Ballett. Vor allem die natürliche Bewegung stand hier im Vordergrund. So ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass gerade die Expressionisten dies in ihren Werken wiedergaben, die damit auch eine gesteigerte Lebenskraft aufzeigen wollten. Im vorliegenden Holzschnitt nimmt Nolde diese Strömungen auf und zeigt zwei leicht bekleidete Damen ausgelassen tanzend. Die geheimnisvolle Stimmung der Komposition wird von Nolde noch durch die Kerzen im unteren Bildteil unterstrichen. Die Künstler der "Brücke" trafen auf die Tanzeinflüsse vor allem in Dresden, wo in den 1920er Jahren Mary Wigman und Greta Palucca ihre Tanzschulen gründeten. Es ging Mary Wigman besonders darum, mit dem Tanz seelische Empfindungen zum Ausdruck zu bringen. In der vorliegende Graphik kommen diese inneren Emotionen durch die Technik des Holzschnitts verstärkt zur Geltung. – Tiefschwarzer Abzug mit schönem Relief. Signatur leicht verblasst. Mit minimalem Lichtrand. Mit minimalen Gebrauch- und Handhabungsspuren. Vereinzelt kaum merklich fleckig (Stockfleckchen). Verso Reste alter Montage, teils Ränder mit minimaler Papierausdünnung. Sonst gut.

Emil Nolde, Apostelkopf, 1909

Estimate: €18,000 - €20,000

Description: Signed 'Nolde.' in pencil lower right.We would like to thank Stiftung Seebüll Ada und Emil Nolde for archive information.According to information from the Stiftung Seebüll Ada und Emil Nolde, the watercolour on offer belongs to a series of apostles' heads by Nolde in the fishermen's village Ruttebüll (Rudbøl) in North Schleswig in the summer of 1909. The year 1909 marks a turning point in Nolde's oeuvre. Henceforth, he turned towards a completely new subject area, that of religious motifs. In Ruttebüll, he began his series of “Biblical and Legend Paintings” (Emil Nolde). For the depiction of his characters, Nolde found immediate prototypes in the faces of the local fishermen and farmers marked by wind and weather.This watercolour was shown at the Emil Nolde exhibition at the Kestner-Gesellschaft, Hanover, in 1948. It is listed among eleven further works on paper as “Zwölf Studien zum Abendmahl” in the exhibition catalogue. Therefore, the present watercolour “Apostelkopf” can be considered as a direct study for Nolde's painting “Abendmahl” (Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen) created in the same year. In this religious masterpiece, the apostles gather closely around Jesus on their last evening together, listening intently, all eyes upon him. The immediacy and intensity of this encounter, accordingly the vision of God's presence, is reflected here in the countenance of the apostle.

EMIL NOLDE - Weiße Lilien, rote Blüten vor blauem Grund

Estimate: €70,000 - €90,000

Description: Aquarell und Kreide auf festem Japan. (Um 1945/50). Ca. 34,5 x 45,5 cm. Signiert unten rechts. Emil Nolde hat seiner Nachwelt eine Vielzahl von Aquarellen hinterlassen. Etwa um 1918 beginnt er sich mit der Blumenwelt auseinanderzusetzen und hält in zahlreichen Variationen seine Liebe für dieses Sujet fest. Auch in seinem Spätwerk sprüht er noch voller Schaffenskraft und sagt im Frühjahr 1934 zu einem Redakteur der Berliner Zeitung in seinem Atelier: "Ich möchte noch fünfzig Jahre leben, um all diese Bilder malen zu können" (zit. aus: Emil Nolde, Retrospektive, Ausstellungskatalog des Städel Museums/Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, 2014, S. 199). Wie im vorliegenden Werk sind die Blüten meist in Nahansicht konkret bestimmbar. Nolde setzt hier zwei zarte weiße Lilienstengel mit einem Stengel roter Blumen (wohl Mohn) vor einen kräftigen blauen Hintergrund. Hierbei führt er seine Komposition mit Unterstützung des beim Malprozess angefeuchteten Japanpapiers und der Verwendung von dünnflüssigen Farben aus und schafft damit sich zufällig ergebende Farbverläufe, die dem Ganzen noch mehr Lebendigkeit geben. Der ehemalige Bundeskanzler Ludwig Erhard erhielt das Aquarell am 4.2.1967 zu seinem 70-sten Geburtstag von Vertretern der deutschen Industrie. Laut der Familie soll es das Lieblingsbild seiner Frau Luise gewesen sein. Werke des Deutschen Expressionismus hatten im Nachkriegsdeutschland als Sammelobjekt wieder an Bedeutung gewonnen und so wollte man dem Beschenkten eine besondere Freude bereiten. – Verso Reste alter Montage. Ränder papierbedingt etwas unregelmäßig. Sonst in farbfrischer und sehr schöner Erhaltung.

Nolde, Emil: Frau N. (Frau Ada Nolde)

Estimate: €9,000 - €9,100

Description: "Frau N." (Frau Ada Nolde)Kaltnadel und Aquatinta auf Van Gelder Zonen-Bütten. 1911.23,1 x 18,4 cm (60 x 41,5 cm). Signiert "Emil Nolde" und von Ada Nolde betitelt. Auflage ca. 20 Ex. Schiefler/Mosel R 165 III. Druck des endgültigen Zustandes mit dem gelichteten, nur wenig fleckigen Plattenton, dem helleren Gesicht und dem im Vergleich zum Hintergrund dunkleren Haar. Nolde zeichnet seine Muse, Helferin und Ehefrau Ada in einer feinen Balance von Delikatesse und Kraft. Das Bildnis zeigt sie en face und beschränkt sich auf wenige Gesichtszüge, dominiert von den dunklen Augen und Augenbrauen. Es scheint sich eher um die Idee der Persönlichkeit zu handeln als um ein Konterfei. Nolde benutzte statt Kupfer für seine Kaltnadelarbeiten oft Eisenplatten oder aber Platten mit korrodierten Oberflächen. Die Sprödigkeit des Materials spiegelt sich in der energischen Strichführung. Der Ätzgrund ist stellenweise verschieden dick aufgetragen und ganz unterschiedlich behandelt, so dass die gesamte Fläche mit einer teils körnigen, teils streifigen oder auch fleckigen Struktur bedeckt ist. Das Blatt gewinnt dadurch einen Materialreiz, der Noldes Gemälden vergleichbar ist. Ganz prachtvoller, klarer Druck, hergestellt bei Sabo, Berlin. In der Druckqualität von nahezu metallischem Glanz, mit herrlichem Grat und ausdrucksvollem, höchst lebendigem Plattenton, mit sehr breitem Rand. Selten."Frau N." (Frau Ada Nolde)Drypoint and aquatint on Van Gelder Zonen laid paper. 1911.23,1 x 18,4 cm (60 x 41,5 cm). Signed "Emil Nolde" and titled by Ada Nolde. Edition of ca. 20.

Nolde, Emil: Bei Sonderburg

Estimate: €6,000 - €6,100

Description: "Bei Sonderburg"Farblithographie auf Velin. 1907/1915. 30,5 x 50 cm (61 x 42,9 cm). Signiert "Emil Nolde" sowie von Ada Nolde bezeichnet "Aufl. Nr. 15" und betitelt. Schiefler/Mosel L 19 II. Nach Schiefler/Mosel betrug die farbige Auflage 16 Exemplare; erst 1915 überarbeitete Nolde seine Lithographie "Bei Sonderburg" und fügte den von Wolken belebten Himmel in hellem Blau hinzu. Bis 1911 hatte Nolde seine lithographischen Motive über ein Umdruckpapier auf den Lithographiestein übertragen. Gustav Schiefler kritisierte dies als einfaches Verfahren, welches die Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten einschränke. 1911 begann Nolde in der Hamburger Druckerei von Genthe direkt auf den Lithographiestein zu zeichnen und entdeckte die enormen Vorteile. "Nun erst erschloss sich ihm der Reiz des Materials, und es wurde seine Sehnsucht, aus diesem herauszuholen, was ihm als farbiger Flächendruck vorschwebte. Im Frühsommer 1913 hat er in Flensburg diese Sehnsucht in die Tat umgesetzt. Er geriet dabei in eine neue Art des Rausches, mit Pinsel und Farbe zu wirtschaften." (Gustav Schiefler, aus dem Vorwort zu Bd. 2 des Werkverzeichnisses: "Das graphische Werk von Emil Nolde 1910-1925, Berlin 1926/27, zit. nach: Schiefler/Mosel/Urban, "Emil Nolde. Das graphische Werk", Bd. I, Köln 1995, S. 19). In der Folge ließ Nolde einen Teil seiner einfarbigen schwarzweißen Lithographien von 1907 farbig überdrucken, wie auch das vorliegende Blatt. Das Motiv bei Sonderburg fand er in der nahen Umgebung seiner Heimat auf der Insel Alsen unweit der deutsch-dänischen Grenze.
