‘Emil Nolde: In Radiance and Color’

German expressionist Emil Nolde in 1923 misguidedly described Adolf Hitler as “great and noble in his ambitions.” Nolde produced bright, bold portraits and landscapes, reminiscent of Gauguin and Van Gogh. By the 1940s, more than 1,000 of Nolde’s paintings, derided as “degenerate art” by the Nazis, were confiscated from German museums, and Nolde was ordered to stop painting. “Emil Nolde: In Radiance and Color” (Hirmer), edited by Agnes Husslein-Arco and Stephan Koja, traces the artist’s career with more than 100 full-color reproductions, focusing on the watercolors he created in secret.
