From his early atmospheric paintings of his homeland right through to the intensely coloured, so-called ‘unpainted paintings’, works done on small pieces of paper during World War II, when Nolde was branded a ‘degenerate’ artist and forbidden to work as an artist, this exhibition covers Emil Nolde's entire career.
