Nolde nostalgia in Vienna

Over the years, brilliant thematic exhibitions have been on display at Belvedere Palace in Vienna. Paintings and photographs of night-time scenes have been presented as well as sculptures, busts and other works of art influenced by the baroque era.
Now – after focusing on the oeuvre of Hans Markart, Carl Schuch and others – the museum’s creative team have organised a temporary exhibit of paintings by Emil Nolde. Stephan Koja and Katharina Lovecky managed to create an exhibit which can do without lengthy explanatory texts. The strength and force caused by the overwhelming beauty of the late German artist’s paintings dominates the exhibition called “In Glut und Farbe”.

The exhibition catalogue – published by Hirmer ( and on sale as of now – offers a great chance to Nolde fans interested in finding out more about the painter, his principles and intentions. All of the exhibit’s paintings are featured in the book. Furthermore, there are articles by several experts including Andreas Fluck and Manfred Reuther.
