Description
Information
Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is the only Scandinavian painter of modern times to have achieved a world reputation. A tragic childhood - his mother died when he was five and a sister when he was thirteen - wounded him deeply, and much of his early work expresses this in its agonized pessimism.

In the first half of his career he lived much of his life in Germany, and became one of the fathers of modern German art. After 1900, however, and particularly after his return to Norway in 1909 following a severe nervous breakdown, his subjects tended to become more extrovert and objective, while his palette assumed increasingly brighter colours. The period 1910-20 was a particular prolific one, in which he painted mural decorations for Oslo University and many other outdoor subjects, but Munch continued working throughout his life and produced some remarkable self-portraits shortly before his death.

This introduction to the art of Munch includes forty-eight full page colour plates, of work from all stages of his career, from the naturalism of the early work, through the symbolic psychological dramas of the 1890s to the brilliant colours of the later works.

Includes 80 illustrations, 48 in colour.
