Nolde & Beck

2 May - 7 June 2014

This exhibition will explore the artistic relationship between Herbert Beck (1920 - 2010) and his mentor Emil Nolde (1867 - 1956), featuring 11 important watercolours by Nolde made between 1908 and 1952, alongside 13 works by Beck. Through landscapes, figurative works and still lifes the show will examine how Beck learnt from Nolde's work the importance of working "from within" and to use the expressive potential of watercolour to create mystical paintings filled with colour, freedom and space.
