This major exhibition of work by pioneering German Expressionist painter Emil Nolde presented at the National Gallery of Ireland is the result of a collaboration between the gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Emil Nolde Foundation. The exhibition will feature more than 120 paintings, drawings, watercolours and prints, selected from the Emil Nolde Foundation. It will span the artist’s entire career from his early atmospheric paintings of his homeland through to his so-called ‘unpainted pictures’ – works done on small pieces of paper during the Third Reich, when Nolde was branded a ‘degenerate’ artist. The exhibition is grouped into five themes: the Idea of Home; the Metropolis; Conflict and Ecstasy; the South Seas and the Exotic; and Sea and Garden pictures. Find out more about the Emil Nolde exhibition from the National Gallery of Ireland’s website.
