Frans Stracké | The Two Mothers, 1893 | Rijksmuseum

Franz Stracké created this sculpture in terracotta in 1893. The title "Two Mothers" refers to the woman and the dog, positioned at her feet looking upwards, whose puppies she is carrying. This work by Franz Stracké is exhibited at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

This sweet scene reflects increasing interest in the lives of fishermen. The statue shows a young woman holding her child, with her dog’s puppies gathered in her apron. Yet life is not a bed of roses for this barefoot fisherman’s wife. She has only two fish in her pouch, and the net that she drags behind her is empty. | Rijksmuseum

Emil Nolde, l'Espressionista perseguitato dal nazismo..


Emil Nolde (1867-1956) riscoperto e rivalutato dopo la seconda guerra mondiale, viene oggi considerato uno dei maggiori rappresentanti dell’Espressionismo.
Nel 1926 Nolde conseguì una laurea honoris causa all’università di Kiel.
Pochi anni dopo cominciò ad essere perseguitato dai nazisti perché Hitler considerava il modernismo un'arte degenerata: dal 1937 i suoi lavori furono vietati e non gli fu permesso di acquistare i materiali per dipingere.
Tuttavia, con l'aiuto segreto degli amici, in quegli anni produsse segretamente una serie di dipinti nei quali il suo stile si fece più pacato e disteso.

Emil Nolde (nato Hans Emil Hansen) è stato un pittore ed incisore Tedesco-Danese. È stato uno dei primi espressionisti, membro di Die Brücke, ed è stato uno dei primi pittori di pittura ad olio ed acquarello dell'inizio del XX secolo ad esplorare il colore.

Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider)

The Blue Rider was a German Expressionist movement that was established in December 1911 by Kandinsky, Franz Marc and Gabriele Münter.
Painters Kandinsky and Marc worked on an almanac in which they showed their artistic conceptions. The title of the almanac, which then became the name of the group, Der Blaue Reiter - The Blue Rider, came from the painting by Kandinsky.
His Blaue Reiter Blue Rider was an adventure in the simplification and stylization of forms and the connection between music and painting.

The Blue Riders believed that colors, shapes and forms had equivalence with sounds and music, and sought to create color harmonies which would be purifying to the soul. Although in this very earliest works, the impressionistic influence was recognizable, the artists who took part in The Blue Rider were considered to be the pioneers of abstract art or abstract expressionism.
