Artist’s Corner: Emil Nolde on the Exaltation of Art

Head with Pipe (Self Portrait) (1907)

“Art is exalted above religion and race. Not a single solitary soul these days believes in the religions of the Assyrians, the Egyptians and the Greeks… Only their art, whenever it was beautiful, stands proud and exalted, rising above all time.”

—Emil Nolde

QOL: beauty, religion/irreligion
