1986 0-7734-2018-5
By exploring the development of Nolde's art and the intellectual sources which influenced it, this book examines the popular notions of nature mysticism and cultural chauvinism known as Volkish ideology which were prevalent in Germany from 1870 - 1933. The nature of Nolde's unique contribution to German Expressionism is clarified when viewed against this historical background.
