Summary note:
Flower paintings in overwhelming colours, magnificent landscapes - today it is primarily these motifs which serve as the trademark of the German-Danish artist Emil Nolde. Nonetheless, another motif actually defines the greater part of his work: the human being. In 1900 Nolde went to study in Paris, like so many of his contemporaries; there he met the young, still unmarried artist Paula Becker. During her brief but remarkable life as an artist, she also created countless images of figures: children, couples and nudes. However, the two artists were united by more than a fascination with the same motif. Each sought - in their own individual way - to use simplicity and reduction in order to bring out the essential, the deep and the unique within the human being. For the first time since their meeting in Paris, Emil Nolde and Paula Modersohn-Becker will once again come together. Presented in a direct dialogue, a total of 70 paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints open up surprising new insights into the visual worlds of two of modern art's most important pioneers. Exhibition: Museen Boettcherstrasse: Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum, Ludwig Roselius Museum, Bremen, Germany (09.10.2016-29.01.2017).
