Edvard Munch : 1863-1944
A revised edition of the most comprehensive monograph on Munch
Though The Scream is undoubtedly his best-known piece, Edvard Munch’s body of work extends far beyond this silent howl to encompass a wide practice across paint, pastel and print. The joint effort of ten scholars, and first published in 2013 to great acclaim, this volume offers a comprehensive survey of Munch’s inimitable contributions to modern art.
The publication covers many aspects of Munch’s versatile artistic practice, with a focus on specific themes and phenomena that characterize his work. The texts offer a fresh look at Munch’s oeuvre in the context of modernism, highlighting the issues that the artist grappled with throughout his career: the relationship between art and reality, the artist and the public, and Munch’s misgivings about modernism and his place in the world. With a thorough bibliography, a timeline of the artist’s life, and excerpts of Munch’s own writing, this monograph proves to be a most comprehensive tribute to the artist.
