Emil Nolde (1867-1956)

Prophet

Berlin, 1912

Woodcut

49.5 x 36.5 cm; mount 73 x 59 cm

 

In this deliberately roughly-cut woodcut of an unnamed prophet, the thick hair and beard merge with the blackness of the background.

Nolde pursued a unique spiritual path and sought to express his own, truly German, art.
