b.1868 in the olde Prussian duchy of Nolde (which after The Great War became part of Denmark.)
Nolde is by far the most famous artist featured heretofore on The Wire. He represented some of the original 20th century art movements, was part of Kandinsky’s Der Blaue Reiter Group and ran afoul of each movement that would have him. For that I had always admired him. Then I learned he was a Danish Nazi so now I think he was a punk.
Whatever, times were tough.
In an ironic twist the Nazi assholes who he supported later deemed his art degenerate and stripped it from museums, despite the fact that Nolde was one of Germany’s most famous painters of the day. He was prohibited from exhibition after 1941.
Emil Nolde. New Master.
Thank you for viewing.
Have a wonderful day.
