Emil Nolde: Wanderlust
Travels through Germany, Spain and Switzerland
Edited by Andreas Fluck.
Published in association with the Nolde Foundation, this is the sixth volume in DuMont's series devoted to painter Emil Nolde (1867-1956). As a member of Die Brücke (The Bridge), Nolde was known for his vigorous brushwork, rhythmic compositions and extraordinary use of color. A farmer's son from the German-Danish frontier, Nolde traveled widely throughout Europe: Switzerland, Denmark, France, Italy, Sweden, England, Austria, Belgium, Holland and Spain. While the artist is usually associated with paintings and watercolors of his native gardens in Germany, this latest edition focuses on his European travels and how he translated his wanderlust onto canvas. Guided by imagination, Nolde created an integrated vision of the world that celebrated a love of nature and all that was around him. Featuring mountain panoramas and studies of the people he encountered, Emil Nolde: Wanderlust gives new perspectives on this leading figure in German Expressionism.
