Emil Nolde (1867)

Nolde was a German painter and printmaker. Fervently religious, he often painted supernatural imagery, such as demonic heads and mystic appearances. Impressed by the art he saw on a 1913 expedition to the East Indies, he began to paint brooding landscapes and colorful flowers. As a printmaker, he was noted for his crudely cut, stark black-and-white woodcuts. Though he was an early advocate of the Nazi party, the party condemned his art and forbade him to paint. What did he do instead? More...

The Strange Case Of Emil Nolde

The art world is in an uproar with the discovery in a Munich apartment. of over 1,000 modernist paintings that had been stolen by Nazis. Many of the paintings were last seen at the infamous 1937 Entartete Kunst ("Degenerate Art") exhibition in Munich. Presumably, some of the rediscovered works are by the great expressionist painter Emil Nolde. Nolde was well-represented at the Entartete Kunst show with 27 paintings; his religious work Christus und die Suenderin was argueably the centerpiece of the entire exhibition and was singled out for special scorn by the Nazis. Thousands of Nolde's paintings were subsequently removed from museums and galaries in Germany, and the Nazis issued a Malverbot to the artist - a prohibition of painting (which Nolde fortunately ignored by creating thousands of exquisite watercolors). Fortunately, many of Nolde's works found their way to the United States, and I first encountered his art at the Busch-Reisinger Museum at Harvard University.

Because Nolde was persecuted by the Nazis, he enjoyed a reputation as something of a rebel in postwar Germany. The central figure in Siegfried Lenz's great novel Die Deutschstunde (The German Lesson - see my review), the artist Max Ludwig Nansen, is modeled on Nolde.
