Title: Das Graphische Werk Emil Noldes bis 1910
Publisher: Julius Bard
Publication Date: 1911
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: First Edition.
Berlin, 1911. Quarto, 140 pp. The first volume in the series. Original woodcuts throughout. Number 391 of an edition of 435. A very good copy with excellent, bright contents. Very tiny creases to corners of some upper pages, closed tear to outer paper on the lower portion of the rear outer hinge of the spine. Nolde married Danish actress Ada Vilstrup in 1902 and moved to Berlin, where he would meet collector Gustav Schiefler and artist Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, both of whom would advocate his work later in life. He spent a brief time between 1906-1907 as a member of the revolutionary expressionist group Die Brucke (The Bridge), and as a member of the Berlin Secession in 1908-1910, but he eventually left or was expelled from both of these groups - foreshadowing of the difficulty Nolde had maintaining relationships with the organizations to which he belonged. He had achieved some fame by this time and exhibited with Kandinsky's Der Blaue Reiter group in 1912, supporting himself through his art. This book contains beautiful Expressionist woodcuts by Nolde. A very nice example. Bookseller Inventory # SP130
