"The painter identifies with the objects of his art, and they become allegories of human fate. In this sense his landscapes - now all in line with the romantic landscape art of Caspar David Friedrich - are neither mere atmospheric pictures nor reflections of random atmospheric phenomena seen over the course of the year, instead they are true "landscapes of the soul", free and immediate expressions of human sensation." Martin Urban, quote after: Martin Urban, Emil Nolde-Landschaften, DuMont Buchverlag Cologne, 2002, p. 7
