Large Sunflowers

Emil Nolde German

Not on view

The artist was born as Emil Hansen near the German-Danish border, but he later adopted the name of his hometown, Nolde. His attachment to the bucolic region is evident in his many affectionate paintings of the Schleswigian countryside. Vibrant sunflowers crowd the composition, pulsating with life through the use of expressionistic brushstrokes.
