The city of Hamburg was of great significance to Emil Nolde. Not only did he find inspiration for numerous artworks here, he also gained considerable recognition at an early stage of his career (1907). Now, for the first time, Nolde’s close ties to the city are being explored in a comprehensive display of around 200 of his works, which include vibrantly coloured paintings and watercolours, atmospheric etchings and woodcuts as well as dynamic brush-and-ink drawings. The fully illustrated catalogue includes scholarly essays and a foreword by Helmut Schmidt. The exhibition runs until the 10th February 2016 at Kunsthalle Hamburg.
