• Nolde's "Kerzentänzerinnen"- characterized by an expressive force and a mystical exotic appeal.
• The eccentric motif of this rare hand-made print is based on one Nolde's most significant expressionist painting: the "Kerzentänzerinnen" from 1912 (Nolde Foundation Seebüll).
• The fascination for expressive free dance is one of the key motifs of German Expressionism.
• In those days Nolde, Kirchner, Pechstein, Jawlensky, Kandinsky and many others were fascinated by the expressive value of modern dance.
• The traditions of ritual dances in many exotic cultures offered inspiration for the dance and art avant-garde at the beginning of the 20th century.
• Rare. To date only a maximum of six other hand-printed copies of this woodcut have been offered on the international auction market (source: www.artprice.com)
