More Information

Nolde was pre-occupied by the encounter between two people, or groups of people - their association and interaction. This encounter between a man and woman is dramatic and emotionally charged. Nolde's use of the etching medium and the chiaroscuro effects he achieves with the biting and inking result in a most powerful image of Expressionist print-making.
