Emil Nolde (1867-1956) is one of the most important and well-known German Modernist artists. The most prominent victim of the Nazi’s art and cultural policy, Nolde celebrated numerous triumphs in the German art world after 1945, not least with his renowned ‘unpainted pictures’. But insiders knew early on of his sympathy for Hitler and the National Socialist regime. In cooperation with the Nolde Stiftung Seebüll, the Nationalgalerie presents the first comprehensive exhibition on this topic, with over 100 works, some of which have never been shown before.

The exhibition is made possible by the Freunde der Nationalgalerie and the Nolde Stiftung Seebüll, supported by Friede Springer Stiftung.
