Nolde and the North
16.10.2021 — 23.1.2022

Current Exhibition

Emil Nolde is one of the best known and, due to his later National Socialist convictions, one of the most controversial artists of classical modernism. The exhibition, mounted by Bucerius Kunst Forum in cooperation with the Nolde Stiftung Seebüll, examines the artist’s early work for the first time in relation to nordic art. Around 80 of the artist’s works, most of them produced between 1900 and 1902, are juxtaposed with paintings by his Nordic contemporaries.
