in detail

Emil Nolde is one of the outstanding artists of the 20th century. The Brücke group of artists, established in Dresden in 1905 by Fritz Bleyl, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, numbers amongst the most important representatives of expressionism. This members of this group, in their early 20s, are impressed by the "colour storms" of Nolde, who is nearly a generation older. In February 1906 they offer him membership of the group. Artistic interaction results from this. The painting of the Brücke is inspired by Nolde, who in turn draws incentives from woodcut, a domain of the Brücke artists. This co-operation, which lasts almost two years, marks the beginning of modern art in Germany. However, Nolde, who "likes so much to have his wings free", separates from the Brücke artists in November 1907. The artistic echo of the time spent together will nonetheless continue to resonate for all of the artists involved for years.
