Nolde

 In May: Bleeding Heart

The decorative “bleeding heart”, popular in country gardens, is also found in great number in Nolde’s splendid flower garden. The pink-coloured, heart-shaped blossoms with their white “droplets” bloom in May, hanging then in delicate strings along their horizontal racemes. Nolde frequently painted “bleeding hearts” in his floral still life paintings – working from bouquets picked and arranged by his wife Ada, which she placed in the little flower parlour on the south side of their home.
