“Edvard Munch: love and angst” exhibition preview at The British MuseumDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures. 08/04/2019. London, UK. A staff member views Edvard Munch’s “Woman with Red Hair and Green Eyes: Sin, 1902”. Munch had used an unknown model for this print. Her direct pose and piercing expression are intentionally striking, giving her a psychological intensity, but her features are deliberately generalised. With her red hair and green eyes, she bears a resemblance to Tulla Larsen, to whom
he was briefly engaged. By emphasising her abundant red hair, he has conveyed something of the stifling attraction he felt during his tumultuous relationship with Larsen.
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
