“Edvard Munch: love and angst” exhibition preview at The British MuseumDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures. 08/04/2019. London, UK. A staff member hangs Edvard Munch’s “The Scream, 1895” - which developed from an episode represented in Despair, but with the central figure turned to face the viewer. The swirling reddish-blue clouds are translated in this print into compressed undulating bands of black and white that emphasise the acute panic expressed by the figure. In a twist of fate, Munch’s sister Laura was diagnosed in 1894 with schizophrenia and institutionalised in a hospital near the site of The Scream.
The work of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) - “Edvard Munch: love and angst” at the British Museum opens from 11 April until 21 July 2019. The exhibition focus on Munch’s remarkable and experimental prints – an art form which made his name and at which he excelled throughout his life – and will examine his unparalleled ability to depict raw human emotion. It will be the largest exhibition of Munch’s prints in the UK for 45 years. Photo credit: Dinendra Haria/LNP
