Emil Nolde - Ungemalte Bilder - Aquarelle und "Worte am Rande" by Werner Haftmann

Emil Nolde (1867-1956), the leading German Expressionist painter was born in the village of Nolde in Nordfriesland near the Danish border. At the age of seventeen he became an apprentice of a wood carver near Flensburg, while at the same time he practiced his skills as a draughtsman. Between 1888 and 1897 he  travelled to Milan, Vienna and Munich, taught technical draughtsmanship and took evening classes in art and painting. In 1898, after the commercial success of his postcards series with caricatures of personified mountains, Nolde decided to cut short his apprenticeship and moved to Munich to work as a painter.

This unique art monograph - Emil Nolde Ungemalte Bilder (Emil Nolde Unpainted Pictures) by the renowned art historian Werner Haftmann presents the works of Emil Nolde at the time of the Third Reich. Although he joined the Nazi party in the early 30s, Nolde's paintings were confiscated from the museums and his work was slandered as Entartete Kunst (Degenerate Art) in 1937. From 1941 on, he was prohibited from painting at all. Nolde who was in his seventies when this happened, secretly continued to paint and made small scale watercolor sketches, the size of postcards, which he called "the unpainted pictures".

עבודותיו של אמיל נולדה (1867-1956) שהיה חבר המפלגה הנאצית בראשית שנות השלושים אך לרוע מזלו בעל מראה פנים קצת שמי, קצת יהודי, "נשלחו" להפתעתו  לתצוגה בתערוכת האמנות המנוונת של שנת 1937. את סדרת הציורים המוצגת באלבום זה שאותה כינה "הלא מצויירים" החל בשנת 1942 לאחר תביעתה של לשכת הרייך לתרבות למסור לה לאלתר את כל יצירותיו. רבות מן העבודות שהעביר הוחרמו, ונאסר עליו להמשיך ולצייר. במחאה החל נולדה לצייר סדרה של מאות ציורי מים קטנטנים, והחביא אותם בדירתו. על פי עדותו, ציורים אלה נעשו על דפי האריזה של המכבסה הסמוכה, מאחר שלא התאפשר לו לרכוש חומרי יצירה. נולדה גם העדיף להשתמש בצבעי מים כי חשש שריח הטרפנטין יסגיר אותו לידי הגסטאפו.

Emil Nolde - Flowers and Animals: Watercolours and Drawings by Martin Urban

Although Emil Nolde cannot be considered primarily as a painter of flowers and animals, these subjects - particularly flowers - occupy an important position in his total work. They are an expression of happiness and of joie de vivre - although not in any outward sense - for there were only few occasions for joy in Nolde's life.

His most rewarding hours may have been those in which he was able to absorb himself completely in nature, when he believed that through the act of creation he was participating in the creative process of nature. Only during these exhilarating moments did he lose his feelings of isolation, of being condemned to remain outside the world of meaningful human relationships. The flower painting of Emil Nolde are evidence of joy in a person who was inclined to regard life as difficult.

The 24 large colour plates in this book have been reproduced directly from the original watercolors. Thus an unusually faithful match has been attained, giving the reproductions much of the quality of the originals. Martin Urban is the head of the Nolde Foundation in Seebull and the author of many other books on Nolde.

במבט מן החוץ נראים חייו של אמיל נולדה כלל וכלל לא קלים - ילדות בסביבה כפרית דתית פרוטסטנטית אדוקה וקשוחה בצפון גרמניה שלא התלהבה מן הנטיות האמנותיות שלו, בדידות, לוחמנות, ובעיקר חיפוש עיקש אחר הדרך לבטא את הקול הפנימי שלו כאמן. הבחירה בפרחים היא עדות לכמיהה לאושר ולשמחה.

Emil Nolde - Landscapes: Watercolours and Drawings by Martin Urban

The watercolours of Emil Nolde (1867-1956) are among the most beautiful and important works of the 20th century. There are a few painters whose watercolours form such a significant portion of their total output, and of these a large part is devoted to landscapes.

The Emil Nolde - Landscapes volume which includes pastels and drawings too, contains examples of all periods of Nolde's creative life. In countless pictures he has shown the landscapes around his birthplace in north of Germany, with the wide, flat plains and the clouds drifting slowly across the sky. In these you can sense the nearness of the sea, which man has been wrestling with for centuries past; you can see the peasant's houses, with their steeply pitched roofs, clustered together on the isolated hills as a protection against the sea which, years ago used to flood the land every autumn and spring.

Sea and sky are experienced as fateful forces of nature. The setting sun transforms the sky into a glowing sea of color as twilight gradually envelopes the earth. The sky becomes the stage for cosmic events, for the struggle between light and darkness.

Nolde is equally interested in lesser dramas. He is entranced by the nuances produced by the light on a rainy day, with its gradation of colors from blue to green, tinged with yellow and red. But above all he is excited by the full strong colors and the dramatic happenings of nature.

In 1930 Nolde spent some months on the North Sea island of Sylt. He painted as if in a frenzy and turned out six large sea pictures and many magnificent watercolors of the sea. Besides the landscapes of his North Frisian homeland, Nolde has also drawn on the experience of his travels. The Swiss mountains landscapes are amongst Nolde's most enchanting and mature works. In some of them the rich colors - deep blue, violet, dark green, pale yellow and brown - blend into each other in such a way that the actual forms of the mountains, the valleys, the patches of sky are barely discernible. The same applies to some of his other freely painted landscapes - are they of clouds, mountains or sea? These pictures are deeply personal, expressions of passionate and sensitive feelings.

אמיל נולדה Emil Nolde הוא צייר בצבע. את קורות חייו המרתקים של נולדה ואת אישיותו המסוגרת, מיטיבה לתאר הבלוגרית ליאת ברשימתה הנהדרת על נולדה. את הפנימיות הגועשת של נולדה מיטיבים לתאר ציורי הנוף הצבעוניים העצמתיים שלו שיש בהם קשת צבעים אישית עשירה וייחודית ומשיכות מכחול נחושות אך גם מלאות תשוקה ורגישות. אתם מוזמנים ל ZOOM.
