4121 T-1. Discovered 1971 Mar. 26 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar.

Named in memory of the German expressionist painter Emil Nolde (1867-1957, real name Emil Hansen). He was a member of a group of artists called 'Die Brucke' and after 1926 lived in Seebiill together with his Danish wife. In 1937 his work was declared to be 'Entartete Kunst', and many of his paintings were therefore confiscated. In 1941 the government even forbade him to paint, although he secretly created his so-called 'unpainted paintings'. (M 25977) See also the citation for planet (5699).
