PAINTED LIGHT: WORKS FROM A DISTINGUISHED AMERICAN COLLECTION SOLD TO BENEFIT CHARITABLE CAUSES
It is this expressive quality, using thick impasto to build an almost relief-like surface of paint, that marked Nolde out to his younger Brücke contemporaries such as Kirchner, Heckel and Schmidt-Rottluff, as a truly innovative artist. In 1906, the same year he painted Frau am kleinen Tisch, Nolde was invited to joined the Brücke group. The enthusiasm with which younger artists received his works is shown in the way they soon incorporated elements of his exuberant style—the dense richness of his palette and his idiosyncratic approach to painting—into their own work. It is works such as Frau am kleinen Tisch that gained Nolde a reputation as one of the pioneers of German Expressionism.
