Edvard Munch – part 3

1902 Edvard Munch, Munch Museum, Oslo
The Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is regarded as a pioneer in the Expressionist movement in modern painting. At an early stage Munch was recognized in Germany and central Europe as one of the creators of a new epoch. Munch’s art from the 1890s is the most well known, but his later work is steadily attracting greater attention.

For full biographical notes on Munch see Edvard Munch part 1- introduction.

For earlier works see part 2 also. This is part 3 of a 20–part series of posts on the works of Edvard Munch.
