Emil Nolde Retrospective

emil nolde retrospective

An Emile Nolde retrospective will open on the 5th of March at the Städel Museum in Germany. 140 works by the German Expressionist artist will be on show. They’ll include paintings, watercolors and prints with a focus on his early and late works. This will be the first Nolde retrospective in Germany for 25 years.

“Hardly any other Classical Modern artist has been so manifoldly discussed and is as omnipresent in German museums as Emil Nolde. On the basis of current research results, the retrospective will shed new light on one of the world’s most well-known artists, whose oeuvre still awaits discovery in many respects.” says the curator Dr Felix Krämer.

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.


  1. One of my favorites, and one of the few who actually understood color beyond a psychological shrillness, Ernst perhaps being the other though Kiefer has richness to his earth tones. Klee really Swiss.
    where you at son?
