Edvard Munch

 Q:   Ask a Question about Edvard Munch       
Edvard Munch Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was a Norwegian painter.

Short Biography:

He studied in Paris and Berlin, and his best works date from 1892 to 1908, when he lived mainly in Germany.

His paintings often focus on neurotic emotional states. The Frieze of Life 1890s, a sequence of highly charged, symbolic paintings, includes some of his favourite images, for example Skriket/The Scream in 1893. He reused these in etchings, lithographs, and woodcuts.

Munch was influenced by van Gogh and Gauguin, but soon developed his own expressive style, reducing his compositions to broad areas of colour with sinuous contours emphasized by heavy brushstrokes, distorting faces and figures. His first show in Berlin in 1892 made an enormous impact on young German artists.

In 1908 he suffered a nervous breakdown and returned to Norway. Later works include a series of murals (1910-1915) in the assembly halls of Oslo University.
