Edvard Munch – part 13

1908 Self Portrait against a Blue Sky oil on canvas 60 x 80.5 cm 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 : 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.
