Emil Nolde: Colour is Life

14 Feb-10 June. The National Gallery of Ireland presents an exhibition dedicated to the German Expressionist artist Emil Nolde (1867-1956), in collaboration with the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. This is the first exhibition in Ireland in more than 50 years to showcase the work of the prolific painter and printmaker.
The works, all of which are on loan from the Nolde Foundation Seebüll in Germany, provide a colourful overview of the artist's paintings, drawings, etchings, and woodcuts. Highlights included Nolde's scenes of Berlin café culture and studies from the South Seas, as well as his portraits, flower paintings and fantastical creatures.
Nolde's work was condemned by the Nazis as "degenerate art" in 1937 and three years later he was prohibited to paint, even in private. Despite this, Nolde risked everything and secretly painted a staggering 1,300 watercolours which he hid until 1945. After the war he received the German Order of Merit, the country's highest civilian decoration.
Mon-Sat 09.30-17.30 Thurs 09.30-20.30 Sun. 12.00-17.30
