Edvard Munch was a visionary and obsessive artist who would not rest until he had captured human existence in its entirety, both in its beauty and in its inner conflicts and contradictions.
Today, paintings such as Madonna, The Scream and Vampire are known worldwide and shared online and on social media in the millions. Munch has become a part of popular culture.
This book gives a concise, accessible and illuminating introduction to Munch’s life and art. It is generously illustrated, including a large selection of images from all stages of Munch’s career.
