In 1945/1946 Ada and Emil Nolde went to St. Peter on the North Sea coast, where Ada would recover from a long heart condition in a sanatorium. After the end of the war, Nolde could easily devote himself to watercolour painting. Nolde himself wrote: “I had already painted quite happily in the first summer after that and I was still able to paint! One hardly knew whether it was still possible. […] The colours flowed in chords. ”(Emil Nolde, Liberation 1945-1946, quoted from: Emil Nolde, Mein Leben, 1976).
