Lot Essay

Palmen in der Südsee dates from 1913-1914, when Nolde was invited to join a German expedition to the South Pacific to study racial characteristics in German New Guinea. This trip solidified his interest in the work of Paul Gauguin and Primitivism, a style he continued to incorporate in his own work from this time, and into the 1930s.
