[t]wo most important subject themes in Nolde’s work were flowers and the sea. Both gave him freedom to explore and express colour, and evoked in the artist an extreme sense of homeland, or “Heimat” in German.
Nolde’s reputation as an extraordinary colourist, and as one of the most accomplished artists of his time to produce watercolours, confirms the general consensus that a late watercolour such as Seascape with Steamer and Sail is an important object of study within the art historical context of the 20th century.
