Summary Edvard Munch's paintings have maintained their captivating hold on audiences for over a hundred years, with The Scream, Madonna and The Kiss being among modern art’s most recognizable and distinct pieces. His works portray the love, suffering and pain of the human condition, as well as the lyrical beauty of nature and the more mundane aspects of everyday life. The distinguished art historian Oystein Ustvedt tells the story of how Munch became one of the most celebrated artists in the world, offering a thorough visual analysis of Munch's paintings, and examining how he painted emotions in a way that had not been seen before. This study is paired with a revealing discussion of Munch’s turbulent life--from a childhood blighted by the death of his mother and sister, to his adult life spent in France and Germany, as well as the mysterious saga that left him with a gunshot would after a breakup. Full of rarely seen images from Munch's archive, as well as fascinating insight into his life and work, Edvard Munch presents a welcome opportunity to get to know one of the modern era's most profound artists.
