Emil Nolde was a painter, printmaker, and watercolorist known for foreboding landscapes, still lifes, and figural subjects. First trained as a woodcarver, he later studied painting and developed a distinctive style involving intense color and thick, gestural impasto. Nolde was invited to join Brücke in 1906 by Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, who introduced him to woodcut. In return, he taught Brücke members his innovative etching techniques.
Ultimately he produced 525 prints, almost all before 1926, mostly unpublished woodcuts and etchings in black and white, often developing his images through several states. Lithography was his favored tool for experimenting with color, including several monumental works printed in numerous color variations in 1913.
