National Art - Emil Nolde Germany, (1867-1956) - ArtYouhua - Emil Nolde (Emil Nolde, August 7, 1867 - April 13, 1956), a famous German painter, edition painter. He was one of the first expressionists, a member of the Die Brücke, an organization of expressionist painters, and one of the first oil and watercolour painters to explore colour in the early 20th century. He is known for his brushstrokes and expressive color choices. Golden yellows and deep reds are often seen in his work, bringing a bright quality to otherwise sombre tones. His watercolors include vivid, melancholy storm scenes and splendid flowers. Nolde's intense focus on floral themes reflected his interest in Vincent van Gogh's art. Emil Nolde is one of Germany's most beloved expressionist artists, but over the years the prolific painter has also been subject to historical controversy for his support of the Nazis. Emil Nolde, formerly Hans Emil Hansen, was born near the village of Nolde in the Prussian duchy of Schleswig and grew up on a farm. Between 1884 and 1891 he studied as a woodcarver and illustrator in Flensburg and worked in a furniture factory as a young man. He spent his many years traveling in Munich, Karlsruhe and Berlin. In 1889 he entered the Karlsruhe Academy of Applied Arts. From 1892 to 1898 he was a lecturer in painting at the Museum School of Industrial and Applied Arts in St. Gallen, Switzerland. He eventually left the job and finally fulfilled his dream of becoming an independent artist. He loved to draw as a child, but was 31 when he took up this new profession. After being rejected by the Munich Academy of Fine Arts in 1898, he began to travel to various places. He spent three years taking private painting lessons, visiting Paris, and getting acquainted with the contemporary Impressionist scene that was popular at the time. In 1906-1907 he briefly joined the Die Brücke, an organization of expressionist painters. He was a member of the Berlin Secession from 1908 to 1910, but was excluded due to disagreements with the leadership. In 1912 he exhibited with Kandinsky's Munich group Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider). By this time he already had some fame and was able to support himself through his art. From 1913 to 1914, he visited Russia, East Asia, South Pacific and other places with the delegation of the Imperial Colonial Bureau. This trip had a great influence on his future creations. Nolde was a supporter of the German National Socialist Workers' Party from the early 1920s and a member of the party's Danish branch. He expressed anti-Semitic and negative views of Jewish artists and considered Expressionism a distinctly Germanic style. Several other members of the Nazi Party shared this view, notably Joseph Goebbels and Fritz Hippler. However, Adolf Hitler rejected all forms of modernism as "degenerate art", and the Nazi regime officially condemned Nolde's work. Until then, he had been highly regarded in Germany. In total, 1,052 of his works have been removed from the museum, more than any other artist. After 1941, he was banned from painting - even in private. During this period, however, he created hundreds of watercolors, which he kept hidden. He called them "unpainted pictures". After World War II, Nolde regained positive reviews and received numerous awards. "Silver blue, sky blue and thunder blue. Each color contains a soul that makes me happy or repells me, and acts as a stimulus. For a person without artistic cells, color is color and hue is hue ...that's all. All their effects on the human spirit, from heaven to hell, are just ignored." - Emil Nolde
