Summary This offers a complete and extensive presentation of Edvard Munch's groundbreaking oeuvre. The articles in this publication shed new light on Munch's response to the new concerns of modernism, such as the relationship between art and reality, the individual's place in the world, and the modern role of the artist in the public eye. A redesigned edition of the 2013 exhibition catalogue commemorating the 150th anniversary of Munch's birth, this book treats all these themes and phenomena with a wide-ranging perspective that spans the artist's lifetime. --Adapted from back cover.
