Emile Nolde was a German-born oil and watercolor expressionist painter known for his bold brushwork and use of strong colors, notably deep reds and golden yellows. Mr. Nolde began his art career at age 31 and was very productive as an artist. During his lifetime, despite having over 1,600 of his paintings removed from museums and destroyed by the Hitler regime, Mr. Nolde is credited with 231 etchings, 197 woodcuts (including “The Prophet” in 1917) and 83 lithographs in addition to his many oils and watercolors.
Mr. Nolde has his work displayed in numerous museums and collections, including famous pieces of “The Burial” (1915), “Head with Pipe” (1907) and “Blumengarten” which auctioned for $3.2 million in a Sotheby’s of London 2112 auction.
